News from southern Wake County. The Town of Fuquay-Varina just closed an RFQ for the design and build of a fourth fire station. From documents on the bid page, the combination fire and EMS facility will be located at 4821 Wade Nash Road, which is a 4.65 acre site located just west of North Broad Street on the north side of town. Sealed proposals were due by November 25.
The planned facility will be some 12,000 square-feet in size, with three drive-through bays. It will also house the Fire Prevention Division, with office and work space for the Administrative Chief, the Fire Marshal, and four Deputy Fire Marshals. Plus “antique truck storage and history room,” notes the project overview. How cool is that?!
