The City will host an open house at the new Seagate Fire Station (Station 10) on Saturday, September 27 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. Mayor Bill Saffo will be on hand for a ribbon cutting ceremony at noon.
The open house will include a tour of the station, a chance to meet the fire personnel, a close-up look at the fire truck and fire equipment, a light snack and Res-Q the clown! Free child safety seat inspections will also be available.
The Seagate Fire Station is located at 6102 Oleander Drive and opened in early September. Significant improvements to the local stormwater system, combined with a unique site design, allowed the station to be built on the site of the old Seagate station. The $3.3 million, 8,300 square foot fire station was completed on time and on budget and has a staff of 5 full-time personnel per shift.
Construction of the station allows the city to better serve residents in the annexed areas and maintain its Class 2 rating, which reflects both superior equipment and manpower, as well as quick response times to fires. This also means lower homeowners' insurance rates for Wilmington residents.
