BRANSON, Mo – Branson Fire Rescue and design contractor, Hoefer Welker, LLC are nearing completion of the design of the new Fire Station #4 that will be located in Ward 3 in the south part of Branson off State Highway 165 on Champagne Boulevard to reduce fire and emergency response times in the south part of Branson.
Fire Station #4 has a total projected budget of $3.5 million which will be funded from the half-cent Public Safety Sales Tax Branson residents passed in 2017. This fire station is projected at a maximum of 11,000 sq. feet and will be designed to house up to six firefighters, three drive-through bays, and a community/training room.
“We have been very impressed with the design company and its use of the latest technology to ensure we build exactly what we need and what the community needs in the most economical and financially responsible way possible,” said Branson Fire Rescue Chief, Ted Martin. “It’s exciting to see this project continue to progress,” Chief Martin said.
The Branson Board of Aldermen approved a contract for the professional design services for the new Fire Station #4 on May 10, 2022. There is no estimated completion date for this project as it is in its very early stages.
