The Fire program addresses critical needs for major apparatus and facilities. FY 2012 funding is
proposed to replace one pumper that is at the end of its intended useful life and add a new 100 foot
aerial fire apparatus to serve the west side of the city.
Further, the five year program provides funding for the land acquisition and design of two new Public
Safety Annex Stations in the southeast portion of the City, one of which will serve as a replacement for
Station #3. This is in response to ISO standards that require better placement of firefighting equipment
in the eastern half of the City. It also contemplates that all new stations primarily built for Fire will also be
used as a police substation and can potentially serve to house EMS vehicles and personnel as well.
