Fire Station #8

The City of Regina Fire Master Plan identifies the need for a new fire station in southeast Regina. The new Fire Station No. 8 is required in response to the growing population in the area and to better protect residents not only in the southeast, but throughout the entire city.

Potential location
A vacant two-acre lot at the corner of Chuka Boulevard and Primrose Green Drive has been identified as the potential location. The lot provides highly effective routing to all locations in the community and would meet current and projected response needs.

At this early stage of the project, the City now turns to the community to share more details and to welcome comments. Residents are invited to a come-and-go information night to discuss the potential location of Fire Station No. 8 with City officials:

Thursday, September 22
5 to 7 p.m.
École St. Elizabeth School - Gymnasium
5149 E Green Brooks Way

For those who cannot make the public event or if you are just interested in learning more, the presentation from the information night will be posted on this site on September 23.

  • The Greens needs a firehall but not at that location. It's to busy with the school and no parking around, the fire trucks will likely have issues getting in and out and turning even with the boulevards there. I suggest they locate it down on Chuka across the street from the Save On Foods.

    Thank you for your question! One of the reasons we are having the Information Night and gathering feedback through Be Heard is to identify if parking will be an issue, and if so - to what degree. During the design phase, all feedback will be taken into account to try and minimize impacts. All of the station's staff would park on site and not on the road.

  • What area will this fire station be serving? I would be concerned about the main route out of the area going through a school zone. An area further south on Chuka would make more sense, or closer to Woodland Grove.

    Thank you for your question! There are limited sites available that meet the needs of the project, the vacant two-acre lot identified at the corner of Chuka Blvd and Primrose Green Drive is situated at the edge of the response district for Fire Station #5 and ensures an effective response as the area continues to expand.

    While the frequency of incidents in this area is lower than other areas of the city, life safety is a high consequence. Response times will continue to increase in these communities as the population and city grows.

    Fire and Protective Services has performed GIS mapping to examine potential response times and this location provides easy access to main routes which allows the department to meet response goals over a wide jurisdiction both now and with future growth.
  • How will noise from fire engines and sirens be mitigated in this residential area especially in the evening hours? How will risk be mitigated from speeding fire trucks across from two elementary schools especially during hours when schools empty?

    Thank you for your question! Regina Fire has been operating in residential neighbourhoods for many years. The department’s “good neighbour” approach ensures that we make every effort to reduce noise levels whenever possible.

    The department has other stations including Fire Stations #2, #5, and #6 that are located near school zones and have not had any issues. The presence of a fire station in the school area often provides a sense of security to the residents. This means quicker access to fire and medical response and a building staffed 24 hours per day, which may act as a deterrent to irresponsible behavior.  

    Firefighters are extensively trained in defensive driving tactics and are required to follow all traffic laws unless it is determined safe to alter normal driving conditions. It is far more likely that a child is struck by a car and requires quick assistance from the nearby station than it is for a child to be struck by a fire truck.
