GJFD Opens New Fire Station 3

GJFD Station 3 Opening

The construction of Grand Junction Fire Department Station 3, located at 582 25 1/2 Road, is now complete. GJFD is in the process of moving in furniture and equipment for an official opening May 31st.  The Department will host a hose uncoupling ceremony and unveil exterior and interior station art from local artists that will be shared with the community through local media and Facebook Live at 1:00 PM on Tuesday May 17th.   

The new Fire Station 3 will replace the existing station that has been in service since 1975. The new facility has modern safety upgrades which include cancer prevention features found in other GJFD fire stations. In the coming months, the current station’s property will be converted into a parking area for School District 51 and the Kronkright Sports Complex.  

GJFD broke ground on the station on August 19th, 2021. The Blythe Group designed the station and FCI has coordinated the project with over 20 subcontractors to complete the project in less than eight months. The 10,000 square foot station will be home to the engine and ambulance crew currently serving station 3, who are able to cross-staff a hazardous materials response trailer. In total, 15 employees will continue to staff the station between the different crew shifts. The primary station area covers 18.73 square miles and serves nearly 14,600 people and 1,203 businesses. In 2021, Station 3 responded to 4,076 incidents.  

For questions about Station 3 contact the Community Outreach Office at (970)549-5800 or by e-mail at GJfirepio@gjcity.org.
