FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The City of Fayetteville hosted the grand opening of its new fire station on Friday, Aug. 5, at 8 a.m.
The celebration was held at Fire Station No. 9 located at 2250 S. School Ave.
According to the City of Fayetteville, this project is part of an infrastructure bond program approved by Fayetteville voters as one of 10 separate questions during a special election held in April 2019.
Phase 1 of this bond project provides two of the planned three additional fire stations, and resources to support the ongoing growth for fire and emergency response.
The new facilities will be staffed with existing personnel and fire companies.
Data research found that if additional fire stations are placed in adequate locations, the city could see a minute decrease in response times. Officials say this would greatly impact lives and property in fire cases.
Fayetteville Mayor Lioneld Jordan and Fire Chief Brad Hardin spoke at the event.
