According to a report from The Coppell Gazette, the Coppell (TX) Fire Department (CFD) announced the opening of its fourth fully operational station on Tuesday, January 19. It will provide 24 hours-a-day service.
Located at 440 Northpoint Drive, Fire Station No. 4 will serve residents, businesses, and the recent increase of commercial properties on Coppell’s west side and will allow the CFD to continue to meet safe and efficient service levels; reduce emergency response times; and maintain the city’s ISO-1 rating, which determines homeowner and business insurance premiums.
CFD Chief Kevin Richardson said that the new station has been a project several years in the making. He attributed the new station to allowing the CFD to save lives and decrease property damage, exceeding industry and community service standards.
Fire Station No. 4 features three apparatus bays; all-day living and working accommodations for on-duty firefighters; and a 5,000-square-foot attached centralized resource management facility, which will primarily be used for apparatus, supplies, tools, and equipment storage.
There is a grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony expected sometime in February.
