Groundbreaking of New Central Fire Station
Groundbreaking ceremony for the new Central Fire Station to be built in Joshua on North Main Street will be October 22, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. That day also marks the sixty year anniversary of the day the community established the Volunteer Fire Department. Design of the new 13,600 square foot facility has been completed and soon the bid phase will be underway. The new station will have 4-65 foot drive through bays with 16 foot doors. The Operations side of the facility will house a kitchen, dining area, day room and bunk room capable of housing 8 overnight firefighters, restrooms and showers. In the administration side, offices for the Chief and other command staff, reception area, lobby, public restrooms, training room and fitness/workout room. The training room will double as a community room available to the public for birthday parties, meetings or other gatherings. Also included in the administation section of the building will be the City’s Emergency Operations Center. More information will be provided as plans are completed.
