The City of Manassas is considering an alternate location for their second fire and rescue site.
According to a release, on July 19 at 7 p.m. at City Hall, the city is hosting a community meeting to ask residents what they think about the Fire & Rescue Station 21 project.
A few months ago, a meeting was held to discuss potentially building the station on Shannon Lane, which was met with lots of concern from community members.
According to a release, the city is considering a site on Dumfries Road between Donner Drive and Manassas Mill Road.
“Over the last 20 years, public safety studies have determined the need for a new fire and rescue station on the southwest side of the City. This new station will reduce the response time for life saving personnel to arrive on scene in this part of the City of Manassas. According to the National Fire Protection Association, a four-minute response time for the first arriving unit is considered optimal,” stated a release.
