The Fowlerville Fire Department is constructing a new station, replacing Station 41

FOWLERVILLE – City, county and fire department officials this week celebrated the start of construction on a 18,000-square-foot station for the Fowlerville-area fire department to replace a 42-year-old building that the department has outgrown.

A landmark event on Tuesday morning highlighted plans for a modern facility to cover the communities of Fowlerville and Handy, Conway and Iosco. The department covers an area of ​​approximately 108 square miles and the new building will be near the center of the service area, Chief Bob Feig said.

The Fowlerville Fire Department has relied on the roughly 6,700-square-foot station for four decades, but since 2014, Feig said, the space has become a constant problem for the nearly 30 firefighters in the department.

“The whole building landscape is just not conducive to the way the fire department is today,” Feig said.
