The West Fargo Fire Department will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for the new fire headquarters ( 1201 10th Ave . E . ) at 9 a . m . Wednesday , May 25 . The new West Fargo Fire Department headquarters is set to be complete in 2023 .

The headquarters will house new , additional full - time crews to reduce response times and lower fire loss across West Fargo . Currently , all full - time crews are based out of the West Fargo Fire Department’s south station with only part - time crews servicing the rented north station .

“The department has seen a 54% increase in fire loss over the past year , ” said Fire Chief Dan Fuller . “This new headquarters will allow our department to reduce response times to better serve the residents of West Fargo . ”
The new , modern fire headquarters will serve two purposes . First , it will become an operational fire station with fulltime firefighters and fire apparatus to respond to calls north of I - 94 , which have contributed to the over 300% increase in calls for service since 2017 . Second , it will house the department’s administrative and risk reduction divisions . The new station will also feature a public component with a training room , lobby and education center . The headquarters will further the City of West Fargo’s goals of reaching an Insurance Services Office rating of class one , which helps reduce the cost of property insurance for residents and businesses .
