Fire Station #2

Peterborough, ON - A survey is now open to receive community input on the planned Fire Station 2 Relocation project.

The relocation project is currently considering two sites for Fire Station #2; Sunset, 916 Chemong Rd. and Northcrest, 100 Marina Blvd. Both sites ranked very high in the initial location review study that focused on emergency response times.

The survey is available at www.connectptbo.ca/fire  until February 19, 2021. The website also features mapping of the two potential locations and conceptual site studies.

Anyone who is not able to access the online survey is asked to call the City at 705-742-7777 ext. 0 or send an email to cityptbo@peterborough.ca.

“The relocation of Fire Station 2 is a much anticipated and exciting project for Peterborough Fire Services. Selecting the new location is a vital part of keeping our community fire safe,” said Fire Chief Chris Snetsinger. “Our stations and fire trucks need to be where they are most effective, relocating Station 2 will allow Peterborough Fire Services to maintain its optimum response times to our growing community.”

Public input received through the survey will be considered by City staff as they evaluate the potential locations with a focus on emergency response times, legislation and fire service industry standards. With public health measures in place during the COVID-19 pandemic, in-person meetings are not able to be held for the public consultation.

Once analysis is complete, a staff report to recommend a location will be presented for City Council’s consideration later this spring.
