The 5,176 square foot Fire Station #5, originally constructed in 1959, was closed for demolition
October 13. The new 8,430 square foot fire station will be built by Mann’s Construction of
West Monroe. The cost is estimated to be at $2,145,000 and will be paid for by the Monroe
Fire Department Capital fund and 2% insurance fund. The projected construction time is 300
Mayor Jamie Mayo says, “We are Monroe Proud to have a Class 1 Rated Fire Department.
This latest fire station upgrade will allow our first responders to operate out of a 21st century
facility with modern living and work conveniences and capabilities.”
Monroe Fire Chief Terry Williams says, “During the construction, fire trucks and personnel
used to cover Station #5’s territory have been strategically relocated to other fire stations in
order to provide the best coverage for our citizens. Our goal is to provide the best service
possible to our citizens not only during construction, but for many years to come.”
