Demolition is well underway on the former Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service (WFPS) Station 15 in Windsor Park. While the building began being torn down on Monday, crews have been doing asbestos abatement over the past few weeks.
Once demolition has wrapped up, construction will begin on a new station on the same site at 1083 Autumnwood Drive. It’s expected the new station will be open in 2024. It will replace both Station 15 and Station 9, currently at 864 Marion Street.
This project is another step forward in the WFPS' strategic direction, which will see stations consolidated around the city.
The new station will have five bays for emergency vehicles and will house engines, a rescue, the hazardous materials team, and an ambulance. It will also have the WFPS' first large-space training area outside of the WFPS training academy. This will create more opportunities for operational training and safety work.
This station will be known as Station 9 once the crews and apparatus move over. The current Station 9 will then be demolished.
During construction of the new station, Windsor Park residents will be served by nearby stations including Station 2 (55 Watt Street), Station 3 (337 Des Meurons Street.), Station 9 (864 Marion Street), Station 14 (1057 St. Mary’s Road), and Station 27 (27 Sage Creek Blvd.).
