About this project
The City of Burnaby has identified a potential location for a new fire station on Burnaby Mountain. Fire Station #8 will improve response time and coverage during fire emergencies, ensuring the well-being and safety of the community.
The City will plan, design and construct Fire Station #8 in partnership with Simon Fraser University, which would provide the site – tentatively located near Tower Road and University Drive on the mountain's east side – to the City at no cost. In 2021, the federal government committed $30 million towards the project through Western Economic Diversification.
Feasibility study and preliminary design work are currently underway, with the construction expected to begin in 2024.
