Work has officially begun for the Mariposa Fire Station.

Kawartha Lakes broke ground at the site of the new fire station in Mariposa last week. The station is being built to consolidate the Kawartha Lakes Fire Service’s Little Britain and Oakwood stations.

“It’s been a long process to get where we are today and I’m excited for what this new building means for Kawartha Lakes' Fire Rescue Service,” said fire chief Mark Pankhurst who attended the ground-breaking ceremony with members of the service and municipality.

“With new amenities, such as a modern apparatus bay, a dedicated training room, a decontamination area and laundry facilities to keep health and safety a priority, this project is an excellent example of how we continue to build for the future.”

JUST THE FACTS:

-The new fire station project was budgeted at $2 million in 2019.

-The station is expected to be built by the middle of 2021.

-It’s a part of the municipality’s Master Fire Plan.

-The project is being lead by Mark Wilson from MVW Construction and Engineering.

-The building was designed through a committee that included firefighters from both of the consolidated stations.
