VIDEO: The future home of Station 30 is going to be electric and more than just in looks. The city of Charlotte’s budget includes funding to build a new Station 30 in southwest Charlotte. The newly constructed fire facility will be on Beam Road and will be “all electric,” complete with the city’s first electric fire truck. “We are a climate change city, so we are going to try these things,” Mayor Vi Lyles said after the budget presentation. The electric fire station is included in the budget as part of the $20.8 million set aside for building new fire facilities. The city’s budget says Charlotte will be one of the first cities in the country to make this investment. The electric fire station, complete with the necessary infrastructure, is one of at least three fire facilities that is slated to be built. The $20.8 million is part of an estimated $48 million investment over three years.
