Construction underway for Nisku District South Fire Station
This afternoon, Leduc County and Edmonton International Airport (YEG) celebrated the future of fire services at a groundbreaking ceremony for a new fire station that will support YEG, Queen Elizabeth II Highway and Nisku Business Park with a 24/7 fire crew.
"We have partnered with YEG to provide fire service to the region for almost 20 years,” says Mayor Tanni Doblanko. “In the last 10 years, both the airport and Leduc County have experienced significant growth that required us to look at our existing infrastructure. Investing now in infrastructure like this fire station will provide much-needed space for firefighters who provide a vital service to residents and businesses in one of the fastest growing areas of the County."
“Edmonton International Airport (YEG) is proud to continue collaborating with Leduc County to find win-win-win opportunities for our region,” says Myron Keehn, President & CEO, Edmonton International Airport (YEG). “This fire hall and expanded Leduc County services represents a modernization for how emergency services are delivered to YEG and within the region, and an investment attraction opportunity for Leduc County. These are the kinds of collaborative efforts that allow our airport to succeed – and when we succeed, so does the region.”
The new $5.3 million investment will replace the previous station to accommodate for future growth and will serve the community for the next 40 years.
Leduc County will assume operational control of groundside fire services in January 2024, which is when the new station will open. Fire crews will continue operating from the existing station until Dec. 31, 2023.
