CANTON, OH (WOIO) –
In an effort to get back in the black, Canton announced the closure of three fire stations.
Next week the Canton Fire Department will enact its realignment plan, due to budget constraints:
Station #5 located at 3701 West Tuscarawas St. will close.
Station #6 located at 2621 Harmont Ave. NE will close.
Station #10 located at 4632 Vernon Ave. NW will close.
These closures will eliminate the previous practice of station closure by rotation.
According to Canton Fire, future potential budget constraints may require additional stations to close, starting with Station #2 located at 415 Belden Ave SE.
Each of the closed stations will have signs indicating they are closed and directing people to the nearest open station.
