The City of Oregon has awarded a contract for the construction of the new Oregon Central Fire Station that will be located on a 6-acre parcel at 1040 S Wynn Road between Navarre Avenue (SR 2) and Pickle Road. Construction work is set to begin in August 2021 and should be completed by October 2022.
The new 21,668 SF station will have five drive-through apparatus bays to house 2 engines, 2 Medic units, Life Squad 8, a brush truck, a supervisor vehicle, and provisions for the tower ladder. It will also have modern living quarters for the on-duty crews, administrative offices, and a training room that will replace the current Station #41 located at 5002 Seaman Road. Primary staffed response to emergency calls will be from this station. Station #42 at 1102 S Wheeling and Station #43 at 4421 Bayshore will continue to operate as satellite stations staffed by paid-per-call part-time firefighters.
The contractor for the project is Midwest Contracting, 1428 Albon Road, Holland, Ohio 43528. The new fire station was planned and designed by Buehrer Group Architecture & Engineering, Inc., 324 Conant Street, Maumee, Ohio 43537.
Construction plans and specifications for the project are available for review at the City of Oregon Municipal Complex at the Department of Public Service Office.
