The Grayslake Fire Protection District in MABAS Division 4 had a ground breaking ceremony this week at the site of what will be their Station 3 at 22405 Peterson Road and Route 60.

Construction of the new 10,600-square-foot station is scheduled to begin in March and be completed by September 2011.

Having the new fire station be located in the far southern portion of the district will significantly shorten response times …

Responding from Fire Station 1 in downtown Grayslake, or Fire Station 2 near the College of Lake County, can be hampered by train crossings and distance.

The third fire station is a response to Grayslake’s growth in recent years, he said in a statement.
