Best spot for a fire hall? Across the highway

I have been following the fire hall location on Seventh Street, next to a school and housing.

With fire alarms, trucks with sirens at all hours, how is this a good idea?

I feel the best place for the fire department would be across the Pat Bay Highway on Beacon Avenue at Sterling Way. This would give full access to all parts of Sidney with no restrictions on movement and bother to schools or apartments.

I know Sidney is looking at this and I feel this is the place for the fire hall and would look good on this corner.
