Wake County Commissioners and the Bay Leaf Volunteer Fire Department Board of Directors broke ground for the new Bay Leaf Fire Station today, October 10, 2012, at 11 a.m., 11713 Six Forks Rd., in Raleigh.
In June, County Commissioners approved the appropriation of $3,445,000 for the schematic design and reconstruction of Bay Leaf Fire Station #1. Once complete, the new facility will be a 2-story, 16,400 square foot building with a code compliant sleeping area, training space to accommodate up to 70 people and administrative offices.
The new station will also provide three full-length and one-half length storage bays for fire trucks. The new facility will be built on the existing site, and is expected to be completed by late summer of 2013.
The Bay Leaf Volunteer Fire Department serves the Bay Leaf Fire Insurance District in Northern Wake County from three fire stations. The Bay Leaf Fire Insurance District is 36.03 miles in area and includes a population exceeding 23,600 citizens
