    There are a number of projects and items on the horizon for the department. Currently we are working with the City of Alachua and other County agencies to place a Fire Station in the Hague area. The property has been purchased and we are working to secure the needed permits to begin construction.

    We are working to re-locate ACFR Engine 80 further west along SW 24 Avenue. We believe we have located a piece of property which will meet the needs of a fire station. ​

     We were able to secure a grant from a private non profit for significant improvements of our training facility. These improvements will include an exterior staircase and roof platform to allow firefighters to train on multi-story fire scenarios and high angle rescues. We are very excited about this project as this will greatly improve our facility and training.
