Town approves consolidation of St. Davids, Queenston fire stations

Once the St. Davids and Queenston fire stations reach their end-of-life, the two will be consolidated into one station.

Council approved the consolidation Monday night at its committee of the whole meeting, as well as directing fire Chief Nick Ruller to “limit future investment into the affected fire stations to repairs/replacement of critical components only, and improvements related to health and safety.”

The report estimated the stations would reach their end of life by 2030.

Ruller also was asked to report back to council once a suitable property for the future consolidated fire station has been identified and to provide a report on the feasibility of expanding the current St. Davids facility to accommodate the consolidation.

Ruller will work with the director of corporate services to develop a funding strategy for the future consolidated fire station.
