Insulation is also being installed and plumbing and electrical are going in. Medford Fire-Rescue said overall there are no major concerns. The new building is going in on Highland near Siskiyou Boulevard, and will be big enough for the station to have a reserve fire engine.
“If we get on a fire with the first engine and crew, we can call back a crew with the reserve engine and they can staff the station right away,” said Deputy Chief Greg Kleinberg, fire marshal for Medford Fire-Rescue.
The new station is right next to the old station. The department said moving even a few feet from the roundabout will make responding to calls safer and faster.
