We are pleased to announce the grand opening of the final phase of Fire Station 3 at 407 Hubbard Street. This station has been providing fire coverage as well as community meeting space for the past few years. On February 11, 2016 the Town Manager, Mark Verniel, and the Fire Chief, Keith Botle, formally opened the completed second floor duty shift quarters and exercise facility. The station has rooms for five on-call members and includes laundry facilities, a day room with kitchen, as well as an exercise facility and fire pole.
On-call facilities allow us to have a place for volunteers to be at the station rather than responding from home, improving our response time and service to the community. In the near future, improvements to our other stations will continue this benefit to all areas of Blacksburg, Virginia Tech, and the surrounding county.
