The City of Inver Grove Heights has not built any new Fire Stations in decades. Increasing population and changing demographics were slowly changing the dynamic of the community. This project started with a station location study that indicated a third station was needed to adequately serve the community. One change necessitated by the community was that this new station has living quarters in order for the department to better support the Duty Crew model they have adopted. The station also has a state-of-the-art training facility that can provide training activities such as rappelling, confined space, ladder drills, and use of the aerial platform for rescues from the growing number of rental units in the community.
