Bend Fire and Rescue will officially open its newest fire station on January 9th and it’s hoping the community will join in the celebration.
The Pilot Butte Fire Station is located just south of the Police Department headquarters on 15th street. This two story, 9,000 square foot station will be predominantly EMS oriented but with full fire apparatus response capability.
The grand opening event starts at 3 p.m. and will feature a short ceremony with the Bend Fire Pipes and Drums and a “passing of the key” followed by tours of the station. Ice cream, coffee, hot chocolate and cookies will be served.
