The City of Bismarck celebrated the completion of new Fire Station 4, today at a ribbon cutting event. The new fire station located at 4103 Miriam Ave. is staffed with a fire captain and firefighters. The fire station site is five acres in size and the station is co-located with a live burn training building. The approximate cost of the building was $3.2 million dollars. EAPC Architects Engineers, provided the architectural and engineering services for the training center. Construction was provided by Northwest Contracting, Central Mechanical and Western Edge Electric.
