Fire-Rescue Station To Open Imminently

Miami-Dade Fire-Rescue Station 62 was supposed to go into active service mid-September at the southeast corner of Old Cutler Road and SW 142 Terrace. To passers-by, the temporary station facilities have looked completed for weeks, but still no trucks or personnel.

The delays were caused by pending sewer and communication hook-ups, as well as final closure of permits.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue officials told me on 11/7/16 that active service should begin with three paramedics and one officer (also a paramedic) stationed there 24/7/365 by the time this newspaper hits stands. Further, I confirmed that the plans for the final Miami-Dade Fire-Rescue Station 62 building are in review with Palmetto Bay.

Faster response times are on their way for residents in the area.
