McKinney Fire Station No. 10 is expected to open the morning of April 2, according to a release from the McKinney Fire Department.

The station, located at 1150 Olympic Crossing, McKinney, will include a fire engine, an on-site training facility and will have cancer-prevention technology for its firefighters.

Station 10 will serve the Trinity Falls area.

“McKinney is growing quickly, and our fire department is growing right along with it,” McKinney Fire Chief Danny Kistner said in the release. “Trinity Falls can be proud of this facility and the men and women who will be working there.”

Residents are encouraged to refrain from visiting the station at this time, the release said, but a dedication ceremony and open house will be scheduled later.
