ALEXANDRIA, Va – Alexandria invites the public to a groundbreaking ceremony for the replacement of Fire Station 203, on Saturday, June 22, at 8:30 a.m., at 2801 Cameron Mills Road. The ceremony will occur rain or shine.

The Fire Station 203 Project will replace the current facility, which was built in 1948, with a new up-to-date structure to better support modern fire and EMS apparatus, equipment and operations. The new fire station will be a two-story structure measuring approximately 15,000 square feet. The facility’s two and a half operational bays will house a fire engine, an ambulance, administrative vehicles, and special service units.
Construction of the new station will occur in stages, with the new station scheduled to open in late 2020.
