In 2020, Pasco City Council completed constructing a $5.2 million project for the new Fire Station 83 to replace the outdated one.
The new Station 83 is a 10,612 SF four-bay station that houses one ladder truck, an aid car, and one chief vehicle. The facility also includes living and sleeping quarters, a kitchen, and support spaces for the crew.
The station was moved to a more central location to meet equitable fire response times to serve the community better.
It is located across the street from the city’s water towers resulting in firefighters and paramedics being closer to the large volume of calls in the densely populated area.
This facility was also published as a primary case study in “A Contractor’s Guide to Planning, Scheduling, and Control,” a book authored by Len Holm.
