Latest Updates on South Metro's New Fire Station #20
South Metro Fire Rescue is pleased to be moving forward with the new fire station (Station 20) in Highlands Ranch. This station, which is expected to be approximately 8,420 square feet, will be located on the corner of Wildcat Reserve Parkway and Summit View Parkway. Currently, the construction documents for the station are in plan review and permitting process with Douglas County and South Metro Fire, and once the plans are fully approved and permitted, construction is expected to begin in January of 2020. South Metro then expects the station to open late 2020.
This new station is a commitment that South Metro Fire Rescue made to Highlands Ranch as part of its inclusion into the District and will help reduce emergency response times to an area of Highlands Ranch that has experienced historically extended response times.
