Renovated fire station to be dedicated

Henrico County will hold a public dedication ceremony for the newly renovated and expanded Fire Station no. 8 at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 8 at the station, 8000 Patterson Avenue.
 
The new station more than doubles the size of the original Fire Station no. 8, built in 1950 on the same site. The 8,234-square-foot facility features a two-bay, drive-through garage and houses an engine company, an attack pumper and a reserve engine. Like all new Henrico fire stations, it is equipped with an emergency generator capable of powering the entire station for three days before refueling. Staffed with 13 personnel, the station features enhanced living quarters, office space, an exercise room, a large kitchen area and training room and a shop.
 
Henrico voters approved funding for the $2.05 million station in the 2000 bond referendum. 
 
The public is invited to attend the dedication ceremony, which will be followed by a reception and tours of the station. Additional public parking will be available at St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church, 1101 Forest Avenue.
 
For details, call 501-5877.
