New fire station among six to be built in next 12 years to help response times in Mississauga
Published October 27, 2023 at 5:00 pm
Construction of a new fire station in west Mississauga is expected to begin next spring and area residents can get a sneak preview at an upcoming public meeting.
Plans for Fire Station 123, to be located on The Collegeway just west of Winston Churchill Boulevard, are tied to an initiative that will see six new fire stations added in Mississauga over the next 12 years.
The additional stations, City of Mississauga officials say, are expected to help firefighters 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.
The new fire house will be Mississauga’s 23rd station. Officials say construction will begin in spring 2024 and a completion date has yet to be determined.
A public information session is planned for Nov. 6 at Erin Mills United Church, from 6 to 8 p.m.
Mississauga Fire and Emergency Services officials and Ward 8 Councillor Matt Mahoney will be on hand to deliver remarks and answer questions.
All are welcome to attend. For more information, call 905-896-5908 or visit the City of Mississauga website.
Meanwhile, construction of the city’s 22nd fire station began earlier this year.
Fire Station 125 is scheduled to open in spring of 2025 at Tenth Line and Aquitaine Avenue, in the Meadowvale West community of north Mississauga.
The new firefighting facility will be built to serve what is considered a high-growth area of the city, officials noted earlier.
More details on firefighting plans in Mississauga will be presented at next week’s meeting of general committee.
