Roanoke Valley News

ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Roanoke Fire-EMS’ new Station 7 in Grandin Village is on track to be completed by January 2021.

According to Chief David Hoback, he’s excited to bring the firefighters back to the Grandin Community.

Even though the old fire station was standing proud for more than 90 years in the community, Hoback says there are special touches added to the new station to pay homage to the legacy of the previous one.

“The station reflects the old station, by the brick, to how the brick is laid out; to the doors. The doors are different. The doors on the front are bi-fold doors. They don’t go up and down. They accordion out, and more efficient, and less maintenance door. They add to the architectural warmth of the station to kind of fit in the Raleigh court community,” said Hoback.

According to Hoback, as long as construction stays on schedule, there will be a grand opening of the new station in January.
