On October 26, 2022 Anne Arundel Chief of Fire Department Trisha Wolford hosted the Grand Opening Ceremony for the new Jacobsville Fire Station No.10. The new station sits next to where the old station sat. The old station was formerly the old Jacobsville Elementary School which was renovated in the 1980’s and housed both the Anne Arundel County Police Department Eastern District Police Station and Anne Arundel County Jacobsville Fire Station for over 30 years. The Anne Arundel Police Department left and moved into a new facility over 6 years ago. The County has been working with the Fire Department to design and construct a new and much improved facility. The cost of the new station is $6.2 million.
Construction started around August of 2020 and was ready to move in around September of this year. The new station encompasses 12,000 square feet, more than double the size of the old station, and includes a training room, commercial kitchen, physical fitness room, exhaust removal system, cancer reduction features, and drive through bays.
Chief Wolford was accompanied by Anne Arundel County Executive Steuart Pittman and Third District Councilman Nathan Volke. They held a new “hose uncoupling ceremony” instead of the traditional apparatus “push-in” ceremony to open the new house.
