PHOTOS: Cañon City Area Fire Protection District’s shiny new Headquarters & Fire Station No. 3 is state-of-the-art, contemporary and, frankly, a long-time coming. What personnel and administrators value most, they say, is its functionality. The new nearly $12 million facility, located at 3016 E. Main St., officially began taking calls on July 31. “It came out fantastic, really, the station itself,” said Chief David DelVecchio. “We tried to be as cost-effective as possible, but I think the station – functionality-wise – is going to be great for us, the admin side, the training room, the meeting room, those are all things we really needed to be successful as a fire district here in the community.” Assistant Chief Scott Johnson likes the more modern training facility. “We found the space that we never had,” he said.
