Those interested in learning all about Mississauga’s newest fire station that’s set to open in 2025 in the city’s north end can attend a public information session tonight (Feb. 23).

The informal drop-in event, which runs from 6-8 p.m. at Meadowvale Theatre, will offer attendees a glimpse of design and construction plans for Fire Station 125, to be built at Tenth Line and Aquitaine Ave. to serve those in the Meadowvale West community.

Those in attendance will also learn how the new station, which will be Mississauga’s 22nd fire house, and nearby leash-free dog park will be integrated into the community.

The leash-free zone will be relocated to make way for the fire station. Officials say the dog facility will remain open during construction.

Construction of the station will begin this spring and continue through to fall 2024. The station is expected to open in the spring of 2025.

Staff from Mississauga Fire and Emergency Services in addition to those with the parks department and other officials will be at tonight’s session to discuss the plans and answer questions.

Residents can also pick up some important fire safety information at the drop-in event, organizers say.

The new firefighting facility will be built to serve what is considered a high-growth area of the city.

Construction is tied to an initiative that will see six new fire stations added in Mississauga over the next 12 years and geared to optimize emergency response times. Mississauga’s goal is to get emergency response teams to their destination in four minutes or less 75  per cent of the time.
