For the first time in more than 17 years, there is a fire company dedicated to serving Downtown Cleveland.
Fire Station No. 28 in the Gateway District reopened this week, as a result of City of Cleveland Mayor Frank G. Jackson’s 2017 enhanced budget.
Station No. 28 supplements and provides support to Station No. 1, which serves several nearby neighborhoods including Downtown. The reopened station allows neighborhood locations, which formerly supported Station No. 1 to focus on its own communities.
The reopened station was debuted this week in a press conference that included Mayor Jackson, Fire Chief Angelo Calvillo, Councilman Kerry McCormack, Public Safety Director Michael McGrath and others.
