New Fire Station for Iceland’s Capital Region

Mayor of Reykjavík Dagur B. Eggertsson announced yesterday that a new fire station will be built in the capital region to improve reaction time which is different depending on the location where a fire is reported.

It takes the fire department the longest time to respond to calls from the most eastern parts of Reykjavík, reports.

The mayor said the planning process will probably be finished in the next few months and that he hopes that a new fire station can be taken into operation next year, either in Mosfellsbaer or somewhere between Mosfellsbaer and Reykjavík.

There have been many fires in the capital region recently, click here to read more about that.
