SYLVANIA TOWNSHIP, OH (Toledo News Now) – Sylvania Township has unveiled plans for the new Fire Station Number One.

The township trustees have approved legislation to solicit bids for construction of the new building. The station will be built on Monroe Street, near Main, where the current building stands.

"It has served the community well where it's at right now," explained Deputy Chief Michael Froelich, of the Sylvania Township Fire Department. "This was probably the best spot that could be found without disrupting the lives of a lot of people."

The new building will feature three truck bays, sleeping quarters, a training area, and a modern kitchen. It will replace a building that was built in the 1930s.

Station Number One is the last of three stations to be replaced with funding from a 1.25-mill levy approved by voters in 2008.

Demolition of the current building will begin in March. Station operations will be moved to a nearby vacant bus garage during construction. Froelich said local safety and response times should not be affected.
