Watch opening ceremonies for new Windsor Park fire station

Join Fire Chief Ken Uzeloc and Councillor Brian Pincott as they officially open the new Windsor Park Fire Station 11 (5506 4 Street S.W.) tomorrow, Dec. 10 at 10:30 a.m.

See a Calgary Fire Department truck helping to cut the ribbon for the new station.

Live streaming of the ceremony starts at 10:30 a.m.

Family-friendly activities

Chief Uzeloc and Councillor Pincott will celebrate with community members of all ages. Kids from the community can take part in craft activities, learn fire prevention and safety tips, and meet Sparky the dog. Everyone is welcome to check out the new station, meet the captain and crew, and see a display of firefighting history from the Calgary Fire Department Museum Society.

Bigger and better-equipped station

The new fire station was needed to replace the original building which had been in service for more than 50 years and was too small to accommodate modern firefighting vehicles and equipment. With three large bays and Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) gold level features, the new Windsor Park Fire Station is now operational and better equipped for emergency response.

The old station next door is being demolished to make way for community green space in the spring.
