In 2012, the City of Rolling Meadows contracted the Illinois Fire Chiefs’ Association (IFCA) Consulting Services to asses and analyze the location of the current fire stations, using nationally recognized and accepted standards. After completion of the assessment, the City was able to make a data-driven decision to relocate both of Rolling Meadows Fire Stations. In March 2016, the City chose R.C. Wegman Construction Company out of four other companies and City Council approved the Award Contract for Fire Station Management Services.
A Stakeholder Committee was formed and the process of acquiring land and designing the stations were underway. In November 2017 and May 2018, land was purchased by the City at 3201 Algonquin Road and 2320 & 2350 Hicks Road for the new Fire Station Locations. On August 14, 2018, City Council approved the start of construction for station 15 on Algonquin Road.
