Construction of McCleary Drive fire hall well underway

It's been one year since the city broke ground on the project

It’s been one year since the City broke ground on the new fire hall on McCleary Drive, and the building is slowly but surely taking shape.

As ThoroldToday reported, due to structural issues at Fire Station 1, the city is building a new fire hall on the corner of McCleary Drive and Collier Road South. 

As the City’s new Emergency Operations Centre (EOC), the 16,000 square foot facility will feature a large meeting space and enhanced technology suited to operating an EOC. 

It will also include three truck bays, proper office space and living quarters for career staff, and individual lockers and a group physical fitness area for all firefighters.

Manorcore Construction is in charge of executing the $11,028,700 (plus HST) project, which is expected to be completed by mid 2024.

Once the firefighters have moved into the new fire hall, the Thorold Museum is hoping to turn Fire Station 1 into their pemanent home.
