SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. — The Spokane Valley Fire Department breaking ground on a new facility Tuesday.

SVPD Fire Chief Frank Soto Jr. is inviting the public to attend to celebrate the first steps of the department’s new Facilities and Maintenance Shop.

“For SVFD, this is momentous, fulfilling one of the capital and strategic plan goals of having a facility that can manage the size and numbers of our apparatus,” said SVFD Fire Chief, Frank Soto.  “With the ever-growing community and its subsequent public safety needs, the new facility will help us be able to keep up with the service needs of our communities, the service needs of our apparatus, and accommodate our Ladder trucks that do not fit into our current maintenance facility.”

Chief Soto, SVFD Fire Commissioner Chair Patrick Burch, Spokane Valley Fire Local 876 President Shawn Pichette, and Lead Mechanic Josh Evans will say a few words relating to the importance of this new facility. Afterward, the ceremonial groundbreaking will occur.

The new facility will be located at 18705 E. Garland or the Northeast Corner of E. Garland and N. Barker Road.
