MARICOPA — The Maricopa Fire and Medical Department is finally getting close to having its first permanent headquarters.
The city announced the new fire and medical administration building groundbreaking ceremony will take place on July 25. The building site is at 45696 W. Edison Road in Maricopa. The event will take place at 8 a.m.
“We are very excited to have our first brick and mortar administration building,” Deputy Chief Brad Pitassi said.
Due to the overpass construction zone, the headquarters was moved to a manufactured building opposite Station 575.
According to Adam Wolfe, public information officer for Maricopa, the majority of the funding is coming from Arizona Department of Transportation due to the need to relocate the center for the overpass.
