Construction has started on Apex Public Safety Station 5 at 1050 Kelly Road. Notes this FY 2015-16 Capital Improvement Plan document, the $3.8M project will be a 16,500 square-foot facility that will house twelve firefighters, two paramedics, and the Community Services division of the police department. The station will house Engine 5 and a future 75-foot quint, along with an ambulance and police mobile equipment.

The need for the station has been forecast since 2004, and was highlighted as an important facility as part of the town's 2013 ISO review. It'll serve three new schools and some 2,000 new residences. The station will reduce response times by approximately two minutes in all primary service areas west of Kelly Road. Here's a panoramic photo of the site. Click twice to enlarge:
