Shipyard fire stationCrews are putting the finishing touches on 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 had been delayed due to Hurricane Florence. It is expected to be operational in late April/early May.
