New Downtown Fire Station

Location at 1235 Camino Del Rio
Current Fire Station and River City Hall

The City of Durango and the Durango Fire Protection District have reached an initial agreement for the city to buy the former Durango School District 9-R property from the fire district. In exchange, the fire district would receive River City Hall.  All River City Hall offices would be re-located to other City Buildings.

Once approved by both, DFPD Board of Directors and Durango City Council, The Fire District plans on building a new fire station on the exisiting fire station lot.  The current building will be torn down and a newly constructed building will include the Fire Station and Fire Administrative Offices.

  • The Durango Fire Protection District, Board of Directors accepted and approved the agreement at their public meeting on June 27th, 2023
  • The City of Durango, City Council accepted and approved the agreement at their public meeting on August 1, 2023
