Dallas Fire-Rescue to Open New Replacement Fire Station

The Grand Opening Ceremony for Dallas Fire-Rescue Station #6 will be held on Thursday, Oct. 6 at 10 a.m. at the new station which is located at 2301 Pennsylvania Avenue. Community leaders, Fire Chief David Coatney and residents are invited to celebrate the opening.

The station was built with two drive-thru apparatus bays, as well as two half bays. Those apparatus bays are equipped with bi-fold bay doors; designed to open horizontally in a fraction of the time it takes to open the traditional over-head rolling doors. The station is targeted to achieve LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum status, as well as City of Dallas goals for carbon neutrality. station-6-aerial-shot-2

Fire Station 6 was funded by a bond package that voters approved in 2006, and its total cost was $7.5 million dollars.
