KETTERING, Ohio (WDTN) – The City of Kettering held a groundbreaking ceremony Friday morning for the first of four new fire stations.

Funding from the EMS Fund and Kettering General Fund will pay for the new stations at a value of $12-million.

Construction is now underway at the Far Hills Avenue location.

“This will be our West Central Station, so we will have a ladder truck, a fire engine, a medic unit and a reserve vehicle housed in this four bay station along with 6 firefighters, paramedics and that is probably one of the most advantageous aspects of our new response model,” said Chief Terry Jones, Kettering Fire Department.

The new station is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2015.

The other three locations will be on Hempstead Station Road, Woodman Drive and in West Kettering. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
