Norfolk Breaks Ground on New Fire Station in Fairmount Park

Will replace Fire Station 11 on Verdun Avenue

NORFOLK, VA – Norfolk Fire-Rescue will break ground on a new 14,000 square foot fire station in the Fairmount Park neighborhood on Tuesday, March 21, at 11 a.m.

The new station will be located at 2601 Lafayette Boulevard and will replace Fire Station 11 on Verdun Avenue, which has been in service for 100 years and was the first in Norfolk to house a motorized fire apparatus.

Units from Station 11 are some of the City’s most essential, frequently responding to fires in other districts due to their central location.

Plans for the new fire station include a new fire engine and an additional response unit to provide citywide supervision for fire and emergency services personnel.

Construction is set to begin next month with a targeted completion date of April 2024.

Groundbreaking Ceremony
 Tuesday, March 21, 11 a.m.
