This project will construct a new 18,500 square foot Fire and Rescue facility on Snickersville Turnpike in the Village of Philomont to replace the existing Philomont Volunteer Fire and Rescue Company #8 Station.
The fire station is planned to be located on a site of approximately seven acres owned by the Philomont Volunteer Fire Company.
The facility is anticipated to include apparatus bays, bunkroom facilities, a training/break room, restrooms, showers, food preparation and dining areas, laundry and decontamination areas, supply storage and a gear and hose drying area. It will also include a breathing apparatus air compressor room, a fitness room, offices and a repair shop.
The November 2020 ballot will contain a bond referendum question on approving the issue of general obligation capital improvement bonds for the costs to design, construct, and equip the Philomont Fire and Rescue Station replacement.
The project is estimated for completion in 2026.
