Construction begins on new $4.7 million fire station in Pasco

Pasco Fire

PASCO, Wash. — A groundbreaking ceremony took place Friday, Feb. 28 for a new fire station at the corner of Sandifur Parkway and Road 76.

The future new building will be home to Pasco Fire Station No. 83, which will relocate from Road 68 south of I-182.

The new location will be centrally located for the city, significantly reducing response times to homes and businesses, according to the City of Pasco.

Undersized and aging, the current Station No. 83 will be repurposed for other City of Pasco uses.

The city approved the $4.7 million construction bid for the station at the Feb. 18 regular meeting.

The new build is a part of Pasco’s Fire Strategic Plan, which calls for additional fire and emergency medical response capacity as the City continues to grow.
