Wainfleet is one step closer to getting their new fire hall.
The Township has bought a new property along Highway 3, just west of Chambers Corners.
Mayor Kevin Gibson says this is great news for the municipality.
“The Township has taken a crucial step towards the long-awaited construction of a new Fire Hall. This site, with its central location, will act as the primary headquarters for the future delivery of fire protection and emergency services in Wainfleet.”
Fire Chief Morgan Alcock says this is the perfect location.
“The previous 2013 Fire Master Plan prepared by T.L. Powell & Associates Ltd. and Cyril Hare & Associates Inc., as well as the 2016 Fire and Emergency Services Operational Review Final Report from Dillon Consulting, identified Chambers Corners as a prime location for the construction of such a facility. Our own review and fire service mapping also confirm this as a significant improvement to both response and coverage for the citizens of the Wainfleet.”
Council will be laying the ground work for the construction project this year.
