New year. New fire station. The city of Goodyear announced on Tuesday that a new health-conscious and innovative fire station is now in service. Located northeast of Willis and Rainbow Valley roads, Goodyear Fire Station No. 186 is a 12,587-square-foot facility that was designed to ensure the long-term health and safety of firefighters. The station has two corridors: one designated for firefighters to decontaminate their turnout gear immediately upon returning from a call and another that will allow firefighters to rid contaminants from their bodies as soon as possible. Most fire stations don’t have these facilities, as bigger fires usually feature teams that are solely in charge of firefighters’ health and safety while on site. “We have paid particular attention to the voices we’re hearing from our firefighters, from the end-users,” Goodyear Deputy Fire Chief Tom Cole said.
