The City of Cape Coral began the new year with a new, $3.6 million fire station at 1038 Burnt Store Road.
Built by Wright Construction Group, Fire Station #11 enhances the emergency response time to residents throughout northwest Cape Coral.
The 9,000+ sf structure required more than six feet of fill material to meet flood elevation requirements. The Class-E building features two 77+-footlong apparatus bays, seven bunk rooms, a complete well and septic system, a 32,000-gallon storage tank to supplement the fire protection system, a full backup power generator, and quality finishes throughout. The project was completed approximately 30 days ahead of schedule.
“The addition of the fire station fills a big gap in safety and provides Cape Coral residents with a much needed service,” said Fred Edman, president of Wright Construction. “We are grateful to be a part of such an important project and to see the positive impact it has on the community.”
