On Wednesday, May 24, 2023, the town of Knightdale held a groundbreaking ceremony for new Station 1 at the intersection of Old Knight Road and Forestville Road.
The 16,128 square-foot facility will house both KFD and Wake County EMS. The $6.8 million facility will be located on a 3.64 acre site.
When completed, the current Station 1 on Hester Street will be renamed Station 2, and the current Station 2 on Steeple Square Court will be relocated to Hester Street, and that facility will undergo a multi-million dollar renovation into a new fire and police administrative building.
The town of Knightdale is also building a fourth fire station on Hodge Road. Read about that project.
