Remodeling and expanding the ElEjido Fire Station has begun and is expected to be complete by March next year. This coincides with the celebration of patron saint of the body.
Jose Juan Rodriguez, president of El Poniente Almeriense Fire Brigade Consortium stated during his visit that the project was valued at 872 400 euros and had been drafted by the Provincial Council of Almeria with full inter-administrative cooperation.
This is a 2018 project. Rodriguez admitted that it had "exceeded its capacity" four years ago. An even larger expansion is currently being considered since the firefighter population will increase before the project ends. The works are expected to be completed in 34. In the worst case, we may be able to reach 43. If everything goes well, then we will need more space to store lockers and bedrooms.
The entire area of the housing has been demolished. This includes the bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens, and lounges. The office spaces have been adapted for this purpose. Once the new area is complete, it will include bedrooms for all shifts, a gym for all hours, two large halls and a kitchen.
Modernization of the entire telecommunications network will be done. This includes adapting bottle loading areas and other requirements. Only the office and hangars will remain from the old park. However, they will undergo remodeling to allow for division and new construction of offices.
El Ejido's fire station was built over 35 years ago.
