Kenosha Fire Department news

Excerpts from the

A city fire station that houses the Kenosha Fire Department’s training center and administration will be reconstructed beginning next year, according to a proposed $9.1 million capital improvement plan for the building.

Under the plan, Station 4, at 4810 60th St., would be located to the west of its current site, and the current building that houses fire administration headquarters, would be torn down to make way the new building. Six years ago, the city spent about $650,000 adding on to the existing Station 4 building to accommodate the fire department’s administration, which had to be moved out of the municipal building at 625 52nd St. due to accessibility issues.

Station 4, which was built in 1964, will be a brand new building. It will be similar in design to the city’s newest building, Station 1, at 2210 52nd St. The $7 million station project opened in August 2019, consolidating stations 3 and 5, formerly at 2121 Roosevelt Road and 2125 Washington Road, respectively.

Engineering for the construction site has already begun and the fire department expects to begin rebuilding the station next year, with $5 million set aside in the capital improvement plan for 2021. Once completed, the administration will be moved to city hall or another Fire Department location.


However, the overall plan is to have fire administration permanently located in the future city hall. As a part of a future plan, city hall is proposed to be built at the northeast corner of 56th Street and Sheridan Road. The city council has yet to approve formal plans for its development.
