Emergency Repairs to Station 1, West Avenue

PAWTUCKET – Today, the City announced the temporary closing of Fire Station 1 on West Avenue, as of March 20, 2017, for emergency repairs and safety upgrades.

The City will continue to be served by five fire stations during this temporary closure.

“Many of our facilities across the city were neglected over time and now require significant repairs,” said Mayor Grebien. “Thank you to our firefighters, residents, and City Council for working with us while we prioritize upgrades to these facilities.”

Repairs were also completed at Station 6 on Newport Avenue earlier this year. During the months that Station 6 was closed for repairs, the community remained well-served by the Pawtucket Fire Department.

If you have an emergency, please call 911; do not report to the West Avenue Station.
