FIRE STATION NUMBER 1
Linden Fire Station #1 Financed by the UCIA
The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders and the Union County Improvement Authority share an ongoing commitment to protecting the residents of Union County. That’s why the UCIA is so proud to have played an important role in the construction of Linden Fire Station #1.
The state-of-the-art facility, located at 302 South Wood Avenue, was financed through the UCIA and is the second fire station to come on line in Linden.
“Making certain our emergency responders have the most modern facilities needed to address emergency conditions in an urban environment such as Linden will always be a top priority,” says Daniel P. Sullivan, Executive Director of the UCIA. “We have financed several projects in Linden, and we urge other municipalities who are seeking to upgrade their public safety facilities to come meet with us and tell us how we can be of help,” adds Mr. Sullivan.
Fire Station #1 is a two-story, 17,300-square-foot building that includes offices for the Fire Chief and the Fire Prevention Bureau, and living quarters for ten fire fighters and officers. The facility also includes five vehicle bays, three fire engine bays and two EMS bays.
Construction on the $5.495 million project began in September 2008.
