We are working to add a fire station in the southern portion of Hillsborough that will improve coverage and response times for the fire district south of town as well as the southern parts of Hillsborough.
Over the last two years we've been working to obtain land and design a facility that will become the fourth fire station for our department.
Our hopes are that this facility will be shared with Orange County EMS and would become a base for one of the Advanced Life Support units currently operated by the county.
The location south of town was chosen due to the need for all properties to be within five road miles of a fire station. Development and call volume in the southern portion of our district has created a need for the new station.
We are currently seeking bids for site development and construction of the new building.
