This station will be the third fire station that Willmeng has been the general contractor for the City of Surprise. Willmeng completed Fire Station 304 in December of 2020 and Fire Station 308 in September of 2021. Willmeng also recently wrapped up work on Surprise Countryside Park, a 12-acre facility on Greenway Rd., just north of Countryside Elementary School.
