FBTX ~ Fire Department personnel began moving into the all-new Farmers Branch Fire Station No. 2 on Thursday. The new station occupies a corner of Holiday Park at Valley View and Alpha and replaces the undersized and outdated Station No. 2 on Spring Valley.
After groundbreaking last Spring, the $5.5 million, 10,400 square-foot facility was completed this week. The two-bay station includes bedrooms for eight firefighter/paramedics, kitchen/dining and day rooms, unisex bathrooms, a community classroom that can seat up to 24 and an International Building Code-compliant storm shelter.
