City of Asheville Breaks Ground on New Public Safety Station on Broadway Street

Warning: Information you find on this page may be outdated or incorrect.

The City of Asheville recently hosted a groundbreaking event for a new public safety station at 316 Broadway Street in North Asheville. This facility will be home to Fire Station 13, a police substation, the relocated Emergency Operations Center, and a small community conference room.

At the event, brief comments were made by Mayor Esther Manheimer, City Manager Debra Campbell, Fire Chief Scott Burnette and Police Chief David Zack.

The event was live streamed on Facebook live at this address.


The Asheville Fire Department identified the need for an additional fire station north of downtown to meet our goals for the standard of coverage. AFD’s performance objective is to reach all emergencies in 5 minutes 12 seconds or less, 90% of the time. The City of Asheville purchased the property on Broadway Street for this purpose in 2010.
