New Station #2 - Central County Fire & Rescue

New Station #2

Station 2 renderingHundreds of local residents will soon have faster
 responses from CCFR thanks to the relocation 
of Fire Station #2. Construction on the new 
station, at 109 McMenamy Rd. in St. Peters
 began in March.

“Our population center has changed since the 
station was originally built nearly 40 years ago,”
says CCFR Chief Russ Mason. “By moving the
station to the other side of Interstate 70 we wil l
be able to respond to more residents in less 
time.” The original Station #2, which was built in
1975, is located at 111 Main St. in St. Peters.
”The new station layout allows for optimal
 response times, and has room to house the 
National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 
recommended four firefighters. It will also be
 able to accommodate the up-to-date equipment 
required for today’s emergency responses,”
says Mason.

The community recommended replacing the
 aging Station #2 to better meet the needs of 
the community during the SAFE-T (Securing
 A Future of Excellence – Together) process
in 2008. Due to sound financial planning, funds 
became available to begin the planning process 
in the winter of 2012. At this time, the public 
provided District leadership with feedback on 
the station plans and architectural renderings. 
Lamb Construction Company (205 E. Elm
Street, O’Fallon, MO 63366) was selected as 
the contractor for the project with a bid of $1,788,400. This was the lowest bid of the 
14 submitted. Dan Stauder Architecture is 
serving as the station’s architect. The station is
 expected to be in service by the end of 2013.
