The city celebrated the opening of Frisco Fire Station No. 9 and the Public Safety Training Center, which will offer training opportunities for fire and police departments in Frisco and surrounding cities.

During a Sept. 20 grand opening ceremony, the street where the fire station and training center are located was dedicated to Donnie Mayfield, a former Frisco fire chief and council member.

The Public Safety Training Center includes residential and commercial components for firefighters and police officers to practice responding to emergencies in different types of buildings. The center also has a driving pad and a four-story burn tower.
