Fire Station #8-4 - 1365 Elgin Mills Road East

Fire Station 8-4
Nearest Intersection: Elgin Mills Road East and Redstone Road

Officially opened in May 2000, Station 8-4 is named after former Deputy Fire Chief Russell “Curly” Lynett. This station was the first ‘single floor design’ station in Richmond Hill. The single floor design reduces response times of fire crews, and also improves the safety of firefighters responding to calls from within the station.

Station 8-4 is home to 20 suppression personnel (firefighters) who work on four separate crews. This station is considered the ‘technical discipline’ station, with firefighters responding to all types of emergency calls, but being specially trained in hazardous materials (HAZMAT), confined space, trench and high level rope rescues.

The station houses a radio room with a base radio for direct communications, hose tower, kitchen, lounge as well as both male and female dorm areas.
