The Town of Queen Creek recently broke ground on Fire Station 4, a new station located in the northeast area of Town on Signal Butte Road, just north of Queen Creek Road.
The addition of Fire Station 4 is a step towards fulfilling the Fire Master Plan, which identifies five fire stations in Queen Creek. It also supports the Town’s goal of ensuring a safe community, identified as one of five goals in the Queen Creek Corporate Strategic Plan. “As a community, we are very excited about this project,” said Queen Creek Mayor Gail Barney during a groundbreaking ceremony Wednesday. “As a Council, we are committed to safety, strategic growth and fiscally sound decisions; this is a project that is in line with each of those important commitments, and I am honored to be a part of Fire Station 4.”
Queen Creek’s population has grown from less than 26,000 when the Queen Creek Fire and Medical Department was formed to more than 52,000 today.
