Groundbreaking for GJFD Station 8

Construction equipment at Station 8

 The Grand Junction Fire Department has begun construction of the new Fire Station 8 with a groundbreaking ceremony Thursday, March 31st. Located at 441 31 Road, the new will serve areas currently covered by Station 2 and Station 4 in an effort to improve service in this growing area. The new facility will be based off the Station 6 and Station 3 designs and will include modern safety upgrades which include cancer prevention features found in other existing fire stations.

Station 8 construction and staffing are funded through the First Responder Tax, passed by voters in 2019. The First Responder Tax allocated funds for the construction, equipment, and staffing of three additional fire stations in Grand Junction. Station 8 is the second of the three promised stations, with the last of the three stations expected to be complete by 2025.

The Fire Department is working closely with the design team and FCI Constructors to keep community partners informed. You can find construction updates through GJFD Facebook, Instagram, and Nextdoor.
