Following a celebratory groundbreaking and tossing of the first dirt, work is now officially underway on Fire Station 46 serving Skye Canyon. On hand for the ceremony were Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman, Las Vegas Fire & Rescue Senior Deputy Chief Robert Nolan, Ward 6 Councilwoman Michele Fiore, and representatives from Century Communities and Core Construction.
Located at 9945 N. Grand Canyon Drive, the 11,059-square-foot station is being built by Core Construction and is estimated to be complete by summer 2023. When finished, the three-bay station will house six firefighters/paramedics around the clock, an engine, and a rescue unit.
Officials said that the new station will help to keep response times down and increase the level of services and protection to the thousands of people and families living in the Skye Canyon master- planned community.
As Skye Canyon continues to be a fast-growing and sought-after community, so too does the need to ensure access to vital services. The new Fire Station is the latest project aimed to meet the needs and protect the area. Mountain View Hospital’s ER at Skye Canyon also opened in the past year in the Smith’s Marketplace center and just west of U.S. 95. The 24-hour facility is designed to meet the needs
of the community of northwest Las Vegas and its rapidly growing population. It allows residents to seek emergency care in their own neighborhood.
