Why move the fire station?

FDOT needs the land where Fire Station #2 sits for critical intersection improvements at A1A/Red Cox Rd. This intersection is the site of multiple pedestrian and vehicular fatalities and accidents.

The service area for the new station encompasses Anastasia Island between the Bridge of Lions and the SR 312 corridor and responds to nearly 1,300 calls annually.

The proposed site centrally positions the station for that service area and is only a half mile from the original location.
