The Park Point Fire Station # 5 is being scheduled to be closed on June 1, 2012. Fire Station #5 provides the only access Park Point residents and visitors have to potential life saving personal and equipment while the bridge has been raised for shipping traffic. Bridge lifts can take as many as 30 minutes to complete with potential additional wait time while traffic begins to move.
We would like to express to the Duluth City Council Members our opposition to the closing of this potential life saving resource. Keep Fire Station #5 open.
