Station 61 Rebuild
Work has begun on the Station 61 rebuilding project. Crews have been relocated in order to prepare for the rebuild. Demolition of the existing Station 61 is planned to begin in late November, and the rebuild is expected to take approximately 10-12 months. While Station 61 is undergoing construction, Engine 61 will operate out of a temporary fire station built on 1st Avenue next to North Metro Fire Headquarters, and Medic 61 will operate out of Station 65, adjoining Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport. The emergency units were strategically relocated to minimize impacts on emergency response to the area.
Why We Are Rebuilding
- Broomfield is growing, and we need space to add additional emergency response resources to serve the area for years to come.
- The existing structure has been remodeled and added on to previously and can no longer be modified to meet our needs.
- Rebuilding allows us to add safety features and modernize the station to prevent firefighter injuries and reduce exposures
Our Promise to You
- We have strategically relocated our fire engine and medic unit to minimize impact on emergency response to the area.
- We will work to keep noise disturbances to a minimum. Construction crews will adhere to Broomfield's guidelines, primarily operating between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. on weekdays.
- We strived to design a fire station that further beautifies the neighborhood and is built to serve our community for decades to come.
- The environment is important to us, and we love the green spaces we live in. When the project is complete, there will be more trees alongside Midway Park than there are currently.
- We will continue to deliver excellent care and customer service to our community.
