New Shipyard Fire Station 5 making progress

Post Date:06/21/2018 1:59 PM
fire stationCrews are making progress on construction of the Wilmington Fire Department’s future Station 5, located at 680 Shipyard Boulevard.

The 11,500-square-foot station will replace the current Station 5 located at 1502 Wellington Avenue and Station 6 located at 3939 Carolina Beach Road. The property is strategically located to allow the new station, along with remaining existing stations, to provide the same level of service currently provided while also updating aging facilities that can accommodate today’s larger fire trucks. The new station will also house WFD’s regional HazMat team, currently located in the Pine Valley fire station.

Construction on the $3.4 million station is expected to be complete this fall.
