Overview

On March 5, 2019, following months of careful analysis, Pitt Meadows City Council decided to rebuild the fire hall on the existing site. A variety of factors were considered in selecting this site including: emergency response times, access, neighbourhood impacts, building costs and site size.  

The new building will replace the existing fire hall which opened in 1983 and no longer meets the needs of PMFRS. The new facility would be larger and address a number of safety and operational hazards for first responders. 

The City has set aside funds in reserves for the facility replacement. The final budget will be determined following a preliminary design, cost estimate and project scope review. The new building will be designed to meet current B.C. Building Codes and be seismically sound. It will also incorporate the City’s new Emergency Operations Centre.

Construction Timeline

Video to Celebrate Old Fire Hall as Demo Nearing Completion

The community is invited to join Mayor and Council on a virtual final tour of the old hall to reflect on its many years of service to this community, and to watch the building walls come down as we embark on the next chapter for our Fire Department. 

Earlier this summer, demolition began on the old 1983 Fire Hall and is scheduled to be completed in the coming weeks. Measures are in place to help mitigate dust, debris, noise and disruption to traffic. Crews are working between the hours of 7am and 5pmm

Temporary Fire Hall at Pitt Meadows Regional Airport

Pitt Meadows Fire & Rescue Services is fully operational in their temporary location at Pitt Meadows Regional Airport for the duration of the construction of the new Fire Hall. Removal of the old building is expected to begin this summer with construction beginning in fall 2020. As the project moves forward, information will continue to be shared with the community on our website and social media channels.
