City Councillors Derek Dang, Bill McNulty and Linda McPhail were so pleased to attend the grand opening of the Cambie Fire Hall No. 3. The new $20.7 million Fire Hall No. 3 replaces the 55- year-old Bridgeport Fire Hall.
The new Cambie Fire Hall No. 3 and Richmond North Ambulance Station will be the first facility in a major B.C. city that has combined Fire and Ambulance services in one building.
The new fire hall is also home to Richmond Fire-Rescue’s new training facility and specialized mechanics shop. The 26,000 square foot facility is sustainably designed to meet Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold standards and will be post-disaster rated to ensure it remains operable in an emergency. Unique features in the new facility include state-of-the art rapid opening bay doors to help speed response in emergencies.
