VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — August 24, 2015 — The Virginia Beach Department of Emergency Medical Services​ will host a public dedication ceremony for Thalia EMS Station 15, Tuesday, Aug. 25 at 10 a.m. at 333 Thalia Road. 

The newly renovated facility is Virginia Beach’s first city-owned, stand-alone EMS station. The facility was originally built as a fire station. The firefighters and their equipment relocated to the new Town Center Fire Station in 2014.

This station will improve response times and provide critical support in its primary service area of Thalia, Town Center and adjoining neighborhoods and provide support for the four neighboring stations: Plaza, Davis Corner, Kempsville and Little Neck.  

The station will be home to four EMS captains (one per shift), four EMS paramedics (one per shift) and rescue squad volunteers from across the city. The station has inside parking space for two ambulances and covered exterior parking for two additional EMS vehicles.   

Tours of the new station will be provided following the dedication.
