Background

As the City of Mississauga continues to grow, the need for essential services continues to rise. Station 125 is a priority project because it will help serve a high growth area identified in the City’s Shaping Ninth Line future growth plans.

The construction of Station 125 is also connected to a City-wide plan to build six new fire stations over the next 12 years to optimize emergency response times. Station 125 and other stations across Mississauga will further improve response times to meet the goal of first truck response in four minutes or less, 75% of the time.

Station 125 was designed with an environmentally responsible approach, achieves net zero energy, and meets the City’s Corporate Green Building Standard.

Once completed, Station 125 will be the City’s twenty-second fire station.
