GRAND COULEE — The Grand Coulee Dam Fire Station project is coming along, according to a press release from the Bureau of Reclamation.

“I’m pleased with the progress made to complete this fire station,” wrote Grand Coulee Power Office Manager Coleman Smith in the release. “We’ve faced several challenges, but in the end, we will have a state-of-the-art facility that will enhance our ability to quickly respond to emergencies in the area,”

The new fire station is located at the west gate to the Grand Coulee Power Office industrial area near the intersection of Highway 155 and B Street.

The 22,000-square-foot fire station will provide space for vehicle and equipment storage along with separate crew areas for sleeping and dining, meeting/training rooms, offices and a public reception area, according to the release.

Progress on previous structural, electrical and mechanical installations at the station is ongoing and slated for completion by the end of February, the release stated.

“I want to express my appreciation to the greater Grand Coulee community for their patience as we tackled the hurdles placed in front of us,” Smith wrote.
