The Irving (TX) Fire Department has settled into its new $3.7 million Station 4 at 800 Metker St., which aims to improve response times better house modern equipment, reports DallasNews.com.
Irving considered remodeling and adding on to the old station—on MacArthur Boulevard and built in 1960—but the upgrade costs didn’t make financial sense. The city paid for the station with voter-approved bond funds.
The new digs will house one engine and one ambulance, with about five personnel on every shift. Residents are invited to tour the new station Friday, beginning at 10 a.m.
New Fire Station 4 will have an open house at 10:00 A.M. on June 18th! As a reminder, the address of the new station is 800 Metker Road. pic.twitter.com/bG8HNCCcX9— Irving Fire Dept (@Irving_Fire) May 25, 2021
