The Richardson Fire Department has officially moved into its newly constructed Fire Station 1/Fire Administration Building just northeast of the intersection of Greenville Avenue and Belt Line Road, about a block north of the former location. 

The 31,000-square-foot facility is the first building to be completed on the City’s new public safety campus, funded by the 2015 Bond Program approved by voters.

“Its just great, its new, its fresh. We have more meeting space, more storage. There is a big air of excitement and I just want to thank the residents of Richardson for this facility,” said Fire Chief Curtis Poovey, Richardson Fire Department.

The new building will provide larger, improved locker rooms, quarters for female firefighters, additional space for existing and future staff and numerous security and operational enhancements.
