Save our Fire Station

As you may know, Runnymede Fire Station 424 is slated for closure in January. This Fire Station is a beloved part of our community and it would be a shame to lose it.

Here are a few things to know:

  • There has been no analysis done of the impact of the closure on public safety, even though closing the station will mean longer response times.
  • The current mayoral administration promised no cuts to service.
  • The beautiful 1929 building is a treasured part of our neighbourhood’s heritage.
  • The Station is one of the most generous in the city in terms of hosting schools and community groups (nursery schools, Beavers, Cubs, etc)
  • It is one of the busiest Stations in terms of responding to cardiac arrest calls.
  • It is in close proximity to 7 schools.
  • If the Station is closed, the site will be privately developed.
