Take a Tour of Lebanon Fire Station 41

Facility Study Determines New Facility Will Better Serve Community 

A Fire Facility study for Lebanon was recently completed by Hanifen & Associates.  The study evaluated the condition and functionality of Station 41, located on W. Silver St.  This is the City’s highest call volume station.  Station 41 was originally constructed in 1952 as a laundromat, and was acquired by the City in 1985 to serve as a fire station.  At the time, Lebanon relied on volunteer firefighters to protect the City.  Over 30 years later, the facility presents many challenges for a modern fire and emergency response operations.

Station 41 Presents Health & Safety Concerns

As the study notes, “Station 41 presents immediate health, safety, and operation inadequacies that relate to housing firefighters on a daily basis.”  Due to the multitude of issues, the study concludes that spending on the current station would be a poor investment.  The proposed 9 mill levy will allow the City to move forward with the planning and construction of a new fire facility to better serve the community.
