As the construction manager, S.M. Wilson & Co. is sponsoring the ribbon-cutting ceremony. They said the project was completed with the help of Northstar Management and FGM Architects.

The Godfrey Fire Protection District moved into the building on March 1, 2024. The community is invited to the open house to celebrate the new firehouse, tour the facility and see the fire trucks.

The new fire station includes five bedrooms, a kitchen and kitchenette, a conference room, a training room, a living space, a reports room and more. The Godfrey Fire Protection District previously operated out of two stations at 6011 Godfrey Road and 1712 West Delmar. This new station brings all the firefighters under one roof in Godfrey.
