About Station 9:
The previous Station 9 building was built in the 1970s. In April 2021, the old building was demolished to make way for the new facility. The new 10,500-square-foot facility is a three-bay station built to withstand Category 4 hurricane winds.
A rendering of the new station is below and a preview tour of the station is posted to the Sarasota County Emergency Services Facebook page. See that below:
