The second of Thunder Bay Fire Rescue’s two new modern Fire Stations opened in January 2015. The new Station 6, located on the corner of Fredrica Street and Neebing Avenue, is part of the City’s six-project plan to improve facilities, infrastructure and response times for Fire and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) in the community.

Station 6 replaces the 64-year-old Brown Street station which hasn’t been able to accommodate modern fire apparatus’ size and meet crew safety requirements for some time. The new site, represents a significant improvement to include all of Westfort and much more of Neebing in meeting the six-minute response goal.

Some sustainable features include:

  • Expanses of natural lighting in the vehicle storage areas
  • Building materials with a recycled component
  • Increased levels of insulation 
  • Recycling of construction waste
  • Low VOC paints, sealants and adhesives, and 
  • Energy efficient electrical and mechanical systems all tied to a web-based building automation system.

The new buildings are projected to use 45% less energy than a similar base building. This project also meets the Gold Standard of the City’s Clean Green & Beautiful policy.
