Construction slated to start for new Cranberry Twp fire station
October 14, 2017
Cranberry Township started off with 1 fire station many years ago. Next, another one was added due to size of the department, and size of the membership. Now, the Cranberry Township Fire Department is seeking bids to build a third fire station. Much like Adams Area Fire District, Cranberry is considering a live-in/bunk-in program.
This program would provide housing up to 12 firefighters. This gives the community to have 12 firefighters at the station full-time, without costing the tax payers. In addition, this still makes the fire department 100% volunteer.
The bids for the new station will begin in early 2018, with construction slated for Spring of 2018. The new station will feature living quarters, a larger administrative office, a lunch room and a fitness room as well. There is no estimated cost for this station.
