Firefighters will today begin protecting the southeast end of the City from the newly built Fire Station No. 3, at 2613 Clarence Ave South. The station, relocated from the corner of Taylor Street and York Avenue, is now in commission.

“This was a strategic choice to help strengthen neighbourhood amenities while providing improved service to the community at large,” says Fire Chief Morgan Hackl.

“We hope Fire Station No. 3 will become part of the neighbourhood and act as a community partner.”
