Valdez Fire Station 1 provides the primary response to fires and emergencies throughout the City and surrounding area. The 52 year old station no longer meets the needs of the area it serves. Neither the station structure nor mechanical systems meet current codes.
Valdez is surrounded by numerous water bodies including glacier fed streams, Port Valdez, lakes and others. The City is committed to evaluating flood hazards and protecting the community. Various flood control projects have been completed or are in development.
