OCEAN CITY, Md. - Construction is complete on the Ocean City Fire Department's new 11,500 square foot station four.
The fire department says the new building, located at 129th Street and Philadelphia Avenue, has been a priority for years. They say the station is necessary due to the large concentration of high rise buildings and year round residents in the north end of Ocean City.
The new station four has greater engine bay capacity by about a third, as well as areas for duty crews and the department.
According to the fire department, the station was recognized in the Town of Ocean City's capitol improvement plan and strategic plan.
The department says an official dedication is planned for the station at 10:00 a.m. Saturday.
