The New Bridge Fire & Rescue Station will improve service and reduce response times around Lake Anna and in surrounding areas of the County. The area that this station will serve as “first due” is where we have a significant amount of current and projected growth.
Safety Equipment & Scope of Work
This project includes the following new safety equipment:
- Fire Engine
This station will also be responsible for staffing our fire/rescue boat.
The Scope of Work for the building materials - including panel material, fasteners, gable trim, etc. - can be found in the April 4, 2022 Board of Supervisors Agenda Packet.
This important project to enhance public safety reflects a considerable amount of both coordination between and commitment from Louisa County and the Foundation for Lake Anna Emergency Services. The Louisa County Board of Supervisors approved the New Bridge Fire & Rescue Station Capital Project as part of the FY 2021 Budget process, and the Foundation for Lake Anna Emergency Services has collected nearly $200,000 to-date in donations to contribute to the project.
