Goodyear is getting ready to add to its city with two new fire stations. The Goodyear City Council approved funding this week for the creation of two new fire stations that will place a heavy emphasis on firefighters’ long-term health and improving response times for the community, according to a release. “They’re very functional buildings, with a focus on improved response times and ensuring the safety of our firefighters inside the station,” Goodyear Deputy Fire Chief Tom Cole stated. “Over the last few years, firefighters across the country on average are seeing an increase in cancer diagnoses from the exposures they encounter on fires. So, it’s in everybody’s best interest to help focus efforts on keeping firefighters safe.”
