Groundbreaking for New Fire Station 2 and Fire Administration Building

Fire Station 2

Construction will begin soon on a new fire station in DeSoto.  This new station will replace DeSoto’s current station 2 located on Belt Line Road.  Funding for the new station was approved by voters in the 2014 Bond Referendum. 

The new 14,200 square foot three-apparatus bay fire station will include:

· Sleeping alcove bunk rooms with adjacent  dayroom, kitchen, dining area and physical agility room

· Offices for Fire Administration and Fire Prevention

A Community Safe Room funded by a grant from FEMA will provide a hardened space that can withstand winds up to 250 mph with 3 second wind gusts.  This room will serve as a multi-purpose community meeting/training space and backup Emergency Operations Center.  Construction is anticipated to be complete in the Summer, 2019.
