St. Peters, MO (Nov. 22, 2013) – While CCFR (Central County Fire & Rescue) Fire Station #5, at 2934 Ehlman Rd., St. Peters, MO 63301, is out of service for a maintenance and repair project, residents can expect their emergency service levels to remain the same. Station #5 firefighters and their pumper truck are being housed at Fire Station #4, 1259 Cave Springs Blvd., St. Peters, MO 63376 during the project.

“By placing the engine company at Station #4, and utilizing a mutual aid agreement with the St. Charles City Fire Department, we are able to continue current service levels to homeowners and businesses,” said CCFR Chief Russ Mason. Those in the Station #5 service area can still expect to receive the standard four-minute or less response times.

The construction at Fire Station #5 will result in a new exterior wall, ceiling and insulation. In addition, the bunkrooms will be updated to enable the housing of male and female firefighters. “This station is properly located and staffed for the area it serves, and these repairs and updates will allow it to continue to serve our community well,” says Mason

The project was initiated after mold was discovered behind a wall while work was being done to update the bathrooms. After further inspection, additional mold was found between sealed walls behind the insulation, and in the ceiling of the station. “While we were not happy to find the mold,” said Chief Mason, “We were fortunate to be able to correct the problem, before it impacted our firefighters.”

Station #5 was built in 1976 and renovated in 1999. The three-person engine company protects the north end of the CCFR District and Hwy. 370, and houses CCFR Rescue Pumper #9554. The station is expected to be back in service by Jan. 1, 2014.
