Excerpts from a Journal-Topics.com article on Glenview’s new headquarters fire station:

Glenview village trustees took their first tour of the new Fire Station No. 6 adjacent to village hall on Waukegan Road.

The building is substantially complete, save the installation of phone and computer systems.

New Fire Chief Ralph Ensign has moved his administrative staff into the three-bay, nine-bunk firehouse, but said moving firefighters in to respond to calls … would have to wait for a few weeks until phone, communication and computer systems are fully installed.

Firefighters have been working out of temporary quarters on Glenview Road at the site of the park district’s former maintenance garage that burned down in recent years.

Initial estimates for the three full-bay, nine-bunk firehouse were $5,673,000 in October.
