Project Summary

Here’s a project summary, from this county’s project page:

On May 12, 2016, Wake County closed on a 0.95-acre tract of land located at 3001 Wendell Blvd., Wendell, for the purpose of building a new EMS station that would serve the Town of Wendell and provide improved response times to the target coverage area.
On July 18, 2016, the Wake County Board of Commissioners approved the schematic design for the new EMS station, composed of 4,231 SF, including 3 single-length ambulance bays, room to house a peak load unit, a 24-hour response unit, and an Advance Practice Paramedic vehicle. Eastern Wake EMS will also [exclusively] occupy and operate EMS units from this location.
On January 17, 2017, the Wake County Board of Commissioners approved a construction contract with Cadet Construction Company of Raleigh to construct the new facility along with all of the necessary site improvements.
