Fire Station 10 Vacant for Construction
The Fire Station located at 676 Meacham is now vacant, and will soon be demolished to make way for the new fire station that will be constructed on the same site.
Personnel and equipment from Fire Station 10 have been moved into a temporary facility, immediately adjacent to the Public Works garage on Biesterfield Road. The fire engine and ambulance will respond from the public works garage, under an arrangement made between the two Village departments.
There will be no noticeable impact to fire and EMS response due to this temporary arrangement. Residents and businesses will continue to receive the highest level of service from the Elk Grove Village Fire Department.
