Yesterday, 19 May 2022, the City of Columbus and the Columbus Fire Department turned over the Charlie W. Louis Station located at 424 8th Street, to BD Construction for them to begin the renovation and addition project.
The project is expected to take approximately one year and will increase living space, update interior furnishings and finishes as well as provide living quarters for four personnel. Once completed this station will allow for additional staffing of fire and EMS units. The additional staffing plan has yet to be determined and there is no date set for additional crews to be assigned there.
During construction, the station will not be operational. All fire and EMS apparatus have been relocated to the Rural Station and Fire Headquarters.
Any questions should be directed to my office. Ryan Gray, Fire Chief
