Temporary Fire Department Changes

Temporary Fire Department Changes
Posted on 12/19/2022
The Shawnee Fire Department is excited for the Fire Station Project that will upgrade both the John B. Glaser Fire Station Headquarters at 6501 Quivira Road and Fire Station 73 at 6805 Hedge Lane Terrace.

As the project kicks off, administrative services and staff will be temporarily relocated in space inside in the PBI-Gordon building at 22701 West 68th Terrace. This is a secured building, so if you need to visit in person, you can park on the north side of the building where you can get buzzed in. If you are stopping in between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m., you will need to call (913) 631-1080 to be let in. 

While renovations are happening at Fire Station 73, please know that area of our community will still be fully covered for emergency responses. Station 74 will cover the north end of that coverage area and Lenexa will cover the south end while improvements are underway.

If you are looking for a burn permit, you can get that online at You can find project updates at

We anticipate this temporary relocation to last through mid-2024 while work is happening at Fire Headquarters.
