‘Closed by Rob Ford:’ Runnymede fire station shuts down – Screams Star

Neighbours of a west-end Toronto fire station say they are worried about their safety after budget cuts forced the station’s closure.

The station near Bloor St. W. and Runnymede Rd. closed its doors Monday after city council voted back in January to reduce the size of Toronto’s fire services fleet earlier this year.

Four fire trucks were also taken out of service Monday from locations across the city.

Residents who live near the west-end station say they are worried that response times will be slower due to the closure.
