EMS Post 8 Ready for Service
Today, Sedgwick County EMS reopened Post 8 at 501 E. 53rd St. North in Park City on Sept. 20. It originally came into service in 1991 as a combined Sedgwick County Fire Station and EMS Post. Sedgwick County Fire District 1 vacated their portion of the building in 2008 when Fire Station 32 was completed.
The repair project consisted of exterior and interior work including a new roof, window repairs, painting, and correcting drainage. Interior remodel work was done to service and deploy EMS apparatuses; in the future it will house a four person crew. There were also ADA upgrades installed as part of the County’s ADA transition plan.
Hanney and Associates were selected as the architect for the project. The remodel began on May 7, 2018 and Compton Construction Services, LLC completed all contract work on August 25, 2018. The project’s budget was $427,219.
