GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT News)-- The Grand Junction Fire Department is looking forward to some of the new safety functions, since the public safety sales tax passed in 2017.

Part of the plan was to grow the fire department and put in new fire stations around town. Station #6 is on its way to be being built at Horizon Park, which is off 27 Road. Staff is still in the stages of securing a contractor. A residential house which currently sits on the property will be demolished as part of the plan. But before it is, the fire department will be using the house for training their current recruit class.

"Right now we have our recruit academy going on and we're actively hiring for people for EMT certifications and without EMT certifications. So you have an opportunity to get a job with us right now," says Ellis Thompson-Ellis with GJFP.

The new station is supposed to be completed by the Fall of 2020.
