New Harris County fire station to enhance service and response times

A new fire station is coming to Harris County to keep up with the demands of district growth.

On Aug. 29, Cypress Creek Fire Department and Harris County Emergency Services District 13 finalized the purchase of land for their future Station 25, according to a press release.

It will be located near Fallbrook Drive and Gessner Road, next to Beltway 8 and Highway 249, per the release, and will be CCFD’s fifth fire station.

Station 25 will enhance coverage of the surrounding area and help support large-scale incidents across the entire district, Public Information Officer Simon VanDyk said.

“We must protect the lives and property of our community and be there for each other to grow,” said Richard Lieder, Cypress Creek Volunteer Fire Department Fire Chief. “With the implementation of the fifth fire station, we will better serve the residents within our district. Since Harvey, we have identified a plan to do more for our constituents, and this station will provide better response times with fully-trained staff.”

CCFD has discussed having a full-time, staffed medic unit at Station 25 with Cypress Creek Emergency Medical Services, which would offer 24/7 care to residents, per the release.

Joiner Architects is working on the project and will complete Station 25 in mid-2021.
