I have thought this for years, and now I think it is time to move Fire Station No. 1 over to the east side of University Road, halfway between Sprague Avenue and Appleway Avenue. The traffic lights could be adjusted to eliminate traffic at University and Sprague, and also University and Appleway.
This should cut the response time going north, east and south. It would add only a few seconds going west. This will free up the property where the present station is located for purposes that are not so critical. This should give the firemen better timing where most of the population lives. Is it possible to remodel the building that is presently located at this proposed site for this purpose?
