401 Parkview Drive NW

  • This is phase II of the station relocation projects as approved in the Fire Services Response Coverage Optimization Plan. Phase I (relocation of Station 2) is complete and working as per expectations.
  • The new location will provide response coverage improvement into NE and NW Crescent Heights, Riverside, Parkview and Ranchlands, while maintaining coverage into the River Flats, Downtown and SE Hill areas.
  • The new location will provide a station on the north side of the South Saskatchewan River in the event bridge use is restricted or unavailable (traffic accidents, construction, flood closures).
  • Once completed 95% of residents will reside within the 6:20 response coverage capability.  The other 5% are seconds outside of that.  This is a significant safety improvement for residents and fire fighters.
  • Final part of the Response Coverage Optimization Plan which also included:
    • Traffic preemption installed on nearly all existing signalized intersections in the City.
    • Traffic preemption being installed on all new signalized intersections.
    • Dispatch process improvements.
    • Installation of mobile computer aided dispatch technology on front line fire apparatus.
