Northside Medic Facility
Land for the Northside medic response station has been acquired through a lease with the City of Canby. This lease will be for 50 years and will cost just $1.00/ year. Preparation for housing is complete, with Canby Utility, City of Canby, Emerick Construction, Canby Excavating, and various other business’ involvement. Trees were cleared by the City and a prefabricated building kit was delivered. Permits were acquired and as of November 10, 2021, construction/land prep had begun! The foundation was poured and the building kit was put together. The open house for this station was held on July 2, 2022 and staffing of the station begun shortly after.

Main Station Remodel
Phase 1 of the ST361 remodel includes the office/administrative side of the station and most of the training room. More office space will be added to accommodate more personnel in the future. Crews, staff, and volunteers have been working very hard to move offices into the modular home located in the upper parking lot as well as move non-essential items to storage for the time being.
Phase 2 of the ST361 remodel includes the crew/living side of the station. More sleeping bunks have been added to accommodate more personnel in the future. Crews, staff, and volunteers worked very hard to coordinate this transition out of the station into the temporary modular home and then back into the newly-remodeled station.
