WYOMING, Mich. (WOOD) — The City of Wyoming will soon reopen a fire station that closed years ago due to budget concerns.
Fire Station No. 3, located on Gezon Parkway near Metro Hospital, will open in the next few weeks. It will house a ladder truck and be staffed with part-time, reserve firefighters.
Monday, AMR began staging an ambulance in the fire station. The city hopes the agreement with the ambulance company will improve response times for medical calls.
The changes come as Wyoming reorganizes its police and fire departments into a department of public safety.
The Gezon fire station was initially opened in 1994 and closed in 2005 due to budget cuts. It then served as a storage for yard equipment, fire department trailers and an antique fire engine.
The fire station has also been used for police and fire training, education programs and community events, the city says.
