Fire Station 61 is getting a facelift

Fire Station 61, located at 10 Sunnydale, is getting its first facelift in 40 years. The station will be expanded and will shed its old exterior for a more environmentally friendly one. This large project will be mostly financed by Ville de Montréal.

Sustainable development is the biggest objective for the fire station: solar walls will be installed to circulate more fresh air in the garage, LED lights will replace old fixtures to reduce electricity consumption and ceramic tiles will replace brick to better control the building’s inner temperature.

The growing fire station will be able to welcome a new service: fire prevention. It will advise residents about various topics linked to fire safety.

Work will start in January 2019 and finish in October 2020. During this time, firefighters will be relocated to temporary accommodations near the fire station in order to keep serving the City as efficiently as ever. The Municipal Patrol will also be rehoused, as the fire station also doubles as its headquarters.
