Construction will begin soon on a new fire station in DeSoto. This new station will replace DeSoto’s current station 2 located on Belt Line Road. Funding for the new station was approved by voters in the 2014 Bond Referendum.
The new 14,200 square foot three-apparatus bay fire station will include:
Sleeping alcove bunk rooms with adjacent dayroom, kitchen, dining area and physical agility room
Offices for Fire Administration and Fire Prevention
A Community Safe Room funded by a grant from FEMA will provide a hardened space that can withstand winds up to 250 mph with 3 second wind gusts. This room will serve as a multi-purpose community meeting/training space and backup Emergency Operations Center. Construction is anticipated to be complete in the Summer, 2019.
