What's the Building Scoop?

2024.02 Fire Station 32 Bldg

Fire Station 32

This month, construction will begin on Fire Station 32, Syracuse City’s second fire station, situated adjacent to Jensen Nature Park. Designed to address both current and future needs, the fire station will help manage the escalating demand for emergency services in our growing city. Over the past four years, emergency calls have increased by 25%, reaching over 1600 calls in 2023 – an 8% increase from the previous year.

Anticipating further demand with the recent opening of the West Davis Highway, the upcoming hospital-level emergency center, and continued commercial and residential growth, Fire Station 32 will play a crucial role in improving response times to incidents in the southeastern portion of the city. It will also help reduce the reliance on surrounding cities to cover incidents in Syracuse that happen while our team is busy with another incident. Without this project, meeting the National Fire Protection Administration (NFPA 1710) standard for response times would be challenging, resulting in an increased risk to the health and safety of our community.

Set on 3.14 acres, the 17,153 square foot fire station will include four apparatus (emergency vehicle) bays, living quarters, and training and office spaces. It will share common features with buildings in Jensen Nature Park and have a connecting walking path to local trails.

With an estimated completion of March 2025, the Syracuse Fire Department will be able to ensure efficient and timely responses to emergencies for years to come.
