Fire Stations

Edina Firefighter/Paramedics respond to emergencies around Edina from two stations.

Station No. 1, 6250 Tracy Ave.

Edina Fire Station No. 1 officially opened for business July 31, 2008. Construction of the new station began in May 2007, and replaced the old Fire Station No. 1, which was built in 1969.

The original station was built to house four to five male firefighters and three administrative staff. It had no accommodations for female firefighters, and was only able to hold three to four large firefighting vehicles.

Additions and renovations to the old station were frequent during its last 35+ years in an attempt to transform the building into a usable work environment. Shortcomings including several OSHA, Building Code, Fire Code, ADA and HIPAA violations made the building difficult to operate from. In addition to design constraints, the building was also plagued with mold problems.

It was eventually determined that the cost of building a completely new building would be the most cost-effective and desirable solution.

Fire Station No. 1 now contains

  • Women’s locker room
  • Individual sleeping quarters
  • Fitness room
  • Training room
  • Meeting/conference rooms
  • Adequate office space
  • Secure narcotics storage space
  • Secure medical records storage space
  • Adequate general storage space
  • Room for 12 large vehicles
  • Medical clean room
  • Medical supply storage room
  • Adequate locker room space for male firefighters
  • White roof to reduce cooling costs
  • Clean water system for water run-off
  • High efficiency heating and cooling systems
  • Automatic back-up electrical generator that will also be used for Energy Savings Program with Xcel
  • Fire sprinkler system
  • Fire alarm system
  • SCBA Room
  • Fire Prevention plan review area

These improvements, along with almost double the square footage of the old station, will allow for continued efficient operation of the Fire Department and accommodate any future growth.


Fire Station No. 2, 7335 York Ave. S.

Fire Station No. 2 was built in 1996 and houses two paramedic/firefighters 24 hours a day, seven days a week. One ambulance and one fire engine are stationed there at all times.

Originally, Station No. 2 housed only a day-time "power shift," but transitioned to a 24-hour station in the early 2000s.

The Station is well-positioned due to the high number of Emergency Medical Services calls received in that quadrant of the City (Approximately 64% of all EMS calls.) The average response time from that station is 3 minutes.
