Official Re-Opening of Town of Caledon Fire and Emergency Services Station 307
On Monday, September 16, 2013, Town of Caledon Fire and Emergency Services hosted an Official Re-Opening Ceremony to celebrate the recent facility expansion and addition to Station 307 in Caledon.
The Station, located at 2 Snelcrest Drive, primarily serving the areas of Mayfield West and Valleywood, has recently undergone an extensive expansion. With this expansion, Station 307 now includes a Peel Regional Paramedic Services Satellite Station. The expansion and addition to Station 307 will provide the surrounding community with a coordinated facility for emergency service needs in Caledon.
The expansion includes a 1,000 square foot training room for Caledon Fire and Emergency Services to service firefighters from across Caledon, expanded office space, and upgrades to technical infrastructure. Additionally, the 2,400 square foot addition that includes a new ambulance bay and employee facility for Paramedic Services, will improve the coordination of emergency services. With these additions, Station 307 will also be able to operate as a secondary Emergency Operations Centre for the Town.
“As Caledon continues to grow, the Fire service must grow to meet the needs of the residents,” said Fire Chief Terry Irwin. “Congratulations and thank you to all of those who contributed to make this expansion of Station 307 a success.”
Dignitaries, Station 307 crew members, firefighters from across Caledon, and residents came out to celebrate the station re-opening. The evening also included the official reveal of the new crest of Caledon Fire and Emergency Services on the station entrance and on the uniforms of personnel.
