Fire Station 2 Relocation Project Update and Public Meeting

The City of Peterborough held a public meeting on Tuesday, January 18, 2022 to provide a presentation on the design of the new Fire Station 2 facility and answer questions from the public. Residents are invited to join the meeting on the City’s community consultation website Connect Peterborough or by phone.

The site at 100 Marina Blvd., which was previously the location of the Northcrest Arena, was approved in April 2021 by City Council following a detailed site study and public consultation process.

It will be the City’s first building that is designed, built, and certified as a Zero Carbon Building for both performance and design categories.

Construction on the new facility is expected to start in the summer of 2022.

“We’re all very excited to see the Fire Station #2 project moving ahead to support Peterborough Fire Service in serving the growing community in the City’s north end,” remarked Councillor Andrew Beamer, Chair of Fire Services. “Please join the public meeting to get a sneak peek of the facility and to take part in the question-and-answer period.”

    If the fire hall is to be “zero carbon” will the trucks and vehicles contained within be zero emission vehicles? if no, please explain why not and what research has been done to date on the subject.

    7 days ago

    No, the electrification of fire trucks is just beginning with only limited ones available for sale just this past year. This technology is still new and will need to be vetted to ensure life safety. However, our frontline fire trucks all meet the current emissions regulations, and this station will be constructed to accommodate an electric fire truck in the future.

    The energy and resources required to mine, manufacture, and ship all vehicles is the most carbon intensive part of vehicles life, including operation.  This means it is sensible for Fire Services to also maximize the service life of their vehicles and not jump into new technology for the sake of replacement to a cleaner operating truck.

    I am very concerned about all the sirens that will be going on with the new station being so close (to residential). At what point do the sirens go off, as soon as the truck leaves the station?

    7 days ago

    Sirens are used to clear traffic for responding vehicles, as such each response can be unique based on current traffic conditions. For this project we are working with the traffic division to further automate the traffic signal to give the fire truck the green light when the truck is responding out of this station. We do expect this to help limit the use of the siren when responding out of the station.

    Why not smaller scale, localized-to-neighbourhoods production near large municipal facilities (new Mem Ctr, Fire stations) enabling peer-to-peer renewable energy exchange would be a lot more sustainable in the longer term & help meet City's own Climate Plan emission reduction targets. This model has already been successful elsewhere

    CL asked 20 days ago

    Fire stations need to be located within particular service areas to meet response times. Referring to the Dillon station location study, this station was recommended to meet target response times. The size of the station is based on current and future needs of the City.

    How many parking spaces will there be for the ball park families to park without affecting the fire truck access/exit.

    Mgarvey asked 18 days ago

    The ball diamond has previously been in use as a scheduled recreation facility. The recreation department have recently completed a review of ball diamond scheduling in the City and the intent is to take this particular diamond off the roster and it will remain maintained for local community use.

    This station is located in a residential neighborhood with a high population of seniors and in addition a new six story apartment building is proposed immediately adjacent to the station site. What steps will be taken in regards to noise and light abatement at the station? What, if any, regulations apply? Thank you.

    charvey1066 asked 15 days ago

    Fire Services are very conscious of being good neighbours and endeavour, always, to minimize the siren noise when able.

    Recommendations in the Noise Impact Study will be implemented into the design and operation of the new firehall. The site is being designed with night sky compliant lighting to minimize light pollution.

    “As per the definitions of NPC-300, noise sources, equipment, activities or facilities connected with emergency measures typically do not require noise impact assessment. However, there are some activities at the Firehall that would not necessarily be considered emergency measures. Therefore, the City of Peterborough has directed us to complete an assessment of those aspects of the facility.”   Excerpt from Cambium’s Noise Impact Study.
