Grand Prairie celebrated the grand opening of the city’s new Fire Station No. 1, 510 W. Main St., in November 2014. The new station has replaced the Fire Station No. 1 on Main Street, which was built in 1949.

The new 11,933-square-foot building features four-fold style apparatus bay doors, which open more quickly and will allow for faster truck exiting than the traditional garage style doors. The facility also includes sleeping quarters for up to 10 firefighters and three officers, a kitchen, dining area, laundry room, work room, day room, workshop and emergency treatment area.

The new Fire Station No. 1 site includes a new public art sculpture, Colorful History, composed of glass and steel. The sculpture’s glass panels are used to display a city timeline featuring a representation of Grand Prairie throughout the decades beginning with frontier days until now.

Visit the Projects in Progress section on the city website for more information on construction, development and openings within the City of Grand Prairie.
