The Grapevine Fire Department will be moving into two newly constructed fire stations as early as this month, built as part of the city’s 2017 bond program.

The new stations 2 and 3 will be located within a quarter-mile of their original locations. Station 2 is located at 3091 Dove Road and Station 3 is located at 3100 Timberline Drive. These new stations will be replacing the original stations 2 and 3 that were built in 1981 and 1982, respectively.

The stations were constructed at a guaranteed maximum price set at $13.13 million by Byrne Construction Services. The funding came from the 2017 Capital Bond Program approved by Grapevine citizens during the Nov. 7, 2017, election.

“We worked diligently to add adequate space for future growth and adaptation to the ever-evolving needs of our community. Both new fire stations are fully protected with a fire sprinkler system, so we are practicing what we preach,” fire Chief Darrell Brown said in a press release.

The new fire stations will offer amenities, including multiple features enhancing the safety of fire personnel. Updates include unisex restrooms and a decontamination restroom facility connected to the apparatus bay. This decontamination restroom allows personnel returning from any emergency to have a place to decontaminate themselves without entering into the living quarters, which eliminates any potential further spread of contaminates.

Other newly added amenities include individual dorms, bunker gear washer-extractors and gear dryers to prevent dirty gear from being transported for cleaning. There are also ample workout and fitness rooms for station members to utilize.

Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, a formal hose uncoupling event has been tentatively scheduled for the spring of 2021.
