Fire Station 11 is now open.

Today, we unveiled the brand new Fire Station 11 on Savoy St. near Lambeth. 

This new facility puts fire fighters where they need to be. It reduces response times, allowing them to keep our families safe.

Investments in community safety are a priority in London, as we continue to grow and evolve we are supporting our everyday heroes.

On Monday, we broke ground on the new OPP Provincial Communications Centre on Exeter Rd. Another facility that will house emergency service workers and support them in keeping us protected.

I’d like to extend my most sincere congratulations to the London Music Office’s Cory Crossman and Tourism London’s Chris Campbell. Both were recognized this week by Music Canada and presented the President Award in Toronto for their outstanding efforts toward building London as a music city.

We truly are a music city. This enriches our arts and culture scene and draws people from across the region. London has such a fantastic talent base and these two continue to help showcase that on a local, regional, national and global scale.  Thank you.

Sincerely,
