Fire station back in service

Fire station back in service

Then ...      The city will hold an open house and ribbon cutting ceremony for the newly re-opened Empie Park Fire Station on Saturday, August 18 from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.

Fire department personnel began moving into the station on July 31, even while finishing touches were being completed inside and outside the facility. The station became active as soon as staff moved in. 

The project began in August 2011 to replace the old fire station which had to be demolished due to mold. The new 9,000 square-foot station at Empie Park is 880 square-feet larger to better accommodate today's larger fire equipment and is similar in design to the Seagate Fire Station #10. The $2 million project finished on schedule and within budget. 

The memorial garden, featuring an artifact from the World Trade Center 9-11 bombing, is being planned. The monument and garden will be permanently displayed at the Empie Park Fire Station as a tribute to Wilmington’s fallen firefighters. Construction on the memorial is expected to begin next year. The memorial will be funded through private donations and sponsorships.
