Ground broken for Ono Island fire station

Posted

The groundbreaking ceremony for the new Ono Island Fire Station No. 4 was held April 14. The new 6,085 square foot facility will be built across the street from the existing station.

The City of Orange Beach and Ono Island have a fire protection and emergency services agreement in place due to Ono Island being outside of city limits. As part of the agreement, the city purchased a new engine and equipment with Ono Island repaying the cost over 10 years. The agreement also includes the Ono Authority constructing the new station.

The new fire station, designed by McCollough Architecture, is scheduled to be complete in April 2022. It will be constructed by M.W. Rogers Construction. It is designed to withstand 175 mph wind speeds and will include six bunk rooms, a private office, an emergency medical service room, two apparatus bays and storage space.
