Fire stations in the county’s western end are receiving some relief.
A new facility will be built in the Gainesville District.
The Board of County Supervisors (BOCS) have approved a $10.2 million contract for its construction.
Spanning 19,000 square feet, Station 22 is going to stand at 7500 Century Park Drive, according to a release from Prince William County.
Space for an advanced life support (ALS) ambulance, a dining area, a room dedicated to fitness, and sleeping quarters are a few of its features.
Expected to be finished by March 2021, the estimated $16.9 million facility will provide support to Station 25 in Bristow, Station 4 in Gainesville, and the Stonewall Jackson Volunteer Fire Department in Manassas.
“This will reduce the workload of these stations and other stations in the area, to include the City of Manassas, Station 15 in Evergreen, and Station 7 at Lake Jackson,” Prince William Fire and Rescue System Assistant Chief Matt Smolsky said in a release. “Reduced workload equates to increased unit availability time.”
