On Wednesday, July 19, at 7:00 p. m. at City Hall, the City of Manassas is asking residents for their thoughts and attendance at a community meeting on an alternate location for the new City of Manassas Fire & Rescue Station 21. Previously, the site under consideration was on Shannon Lane. This new alternate site is located on Dumfries Road between Donner Drive and Manassas Mill Road.
Over the last 20 years, public safety studies have determined the need for a new fire and rescue station on the southwest side of the City. This new station will reduce the response time for life saving personnel to arrive on scene in this part of the City of Manassas. According to the National Fire Protection Association, a four-minute response time for the first arriving unit is considered optimal.
