Colleyville Fire Stations to be dedicated
Central Fire Station
Construction of the new stations represents the replacement of an existing fire station and the addition of a third. Voters approved the construction projects in the 2005 bond election.
Fire Station #2
The dual projects integrate the city’s strategic plan for fire protection regarding placement of fire stations to speed response times for fire and emergency calls.
The stations are anticipated to be operational in late 2007 or early 2008. Administrative offices for the fire department will be located at the Central Fire Station.
With more than 23,000 residents, Colleyville’s population has increased more than 50 percent since the early 1990s. Until 1984, the city’s fire and rescue operations were handled by an all-volunteer department consisting of citizens, city employees, and teenagers who served as a junior auxiliary.
In the next few years, the city of Colleyville plans to add 12 firefighters to the department and an aerial ladder truck. Construction of the new stations, and additional personnel and equipment will be paid through a one-cent adjustment to the tax rate, coupled with effective debt management.
