Its opening has been highly anticipated—and come tomorrow, March 14, we will get to celebrate the debut of the new Fire Station No. 3.
Please join Mayor Grover Robinson, members of the City Council and Escambia County Commission, as well as our Pensacola Fire Department for the ceremony beginning at 4 p.m. sharp. We will hear from several speakers, push PFD’s newest engine into the new building and uncouple fire hoses, in lieu of a ribbon cutting. Cake and tours of the new building will be offered after the ceremony.
Please use the eastern entrance of the firehouse to park. Firefighters will be on-site to help direct traffic.

ABOUT THE PROJECT
The new building will replace the 50-year-old building where firefighters have been housed. In September 2016, the City Council approved Townes + Architects, P.A. for architectural and engineering services. The contract to build was awarded to A. E. New, Jr., Inc by the City Council in September 2017. The project was funded through the local option sales tax.
