The City of Lloydminster is Canada’s only “border city” with the provincial border running through the centre of the City, dividing Alberta and Saskatchewan and creating a truly unique municipality. This City’s population is 31,377 with an economy based on agriculture, heavy oil and gas production, and manufacturing.
In 2019, the need to vacate the existing Fire Station #1 and construct a new Fire Station #1 was determined. With the changing operational requirements of the City’s Fire Services team, enhanced capacity, building facilities and amenities are required. In the current building there is limited space for on-call emergency personnel to stay on site, limited office space, as well as old and outdated equipment that does not meet the needs of the Fire Services team. As such, the City has determined that the best course of action is to vacate the existing Fire Station #1 and construct a new Fire Station #1 that meets the needs of today as well as in the future as the City of Lloydminster grows and expands its service area.
