Lowry Neighborhood Breaks Ground On New Fire Station

DENVER (CBS4)– Denver’s Lowry neighborhood is getting a new fire station.

The city broke ground on the building at Alameda and Xena on Thursday.

The fire station is slated to open in the spring of 2014.

The city said it will bring faster response times to fires in Lowry and other nearby neighborhoods.

“To have another fire station here is more than nice. It’s absolutely about life and safety and about the well being of our citizens,” said Denver Mayor Michael Hancock.

The station will also have areas designated for firefighter training on high-rise fires and search and rescue operations.

The building is being paid for by the Better Denver Bonds. Voters approved that funding in 2007.
