Ogden Station Construction

New Hanover County Fire Rescue (NHCFR) is building a new state-of-the-art Ogden Fire Station in place of the old facility, located at 7375 Market Street.

The old 8,800 square foot fire station, built in 1961, was no longer equipped to be a fully-functional emergency service facility. It will be replaced by a 13,706 square-foot building that will serve as a modern and efficient public safety facility.

Timeline for the project:

  • October 2015: Board of Commissioners approved the purchase of the property from the Ogden Volunteer Fire Association
