Fire station focus group deadline extended to Thursday

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — The deadline for applying to participate in a focus group to provide input on proposed locations for a new Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue station has been extended to Thursday, Sept. 13.

Those interested in participating in the focus group should send a letter of interest to Deputy Fire Chief Chuck Cerasoli at ccerasoli@steamboatsprings.net by 5 p.m. Sept. 13.

As part of the site selection process, the focus group will provide citizen perspectives and insights to a professional working committee tasked with recommending a new fire station location to the Steamboat Springs City Council. It is expected the focus group will meet a minimum of two to three times over the next four months.

Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue currently utilizes the Central Fire Station at Ninth and Yampa streets and the Ambulance Barn on Yampa Street between Ninth and 10th streets to house apparatus and personnel for the downtown area. The proposed station would primarily serve the downtown area.
