On Feb. 15, Montgomery County Emergency Services District No. 10, which provides firefighting services in Magnolia, held an open house event and ribbon-cutting ceremony for Station 183, which was recently renovated.

In a nutshell

Station 183, located along Nichols Sawmill Road, was completely overhauled, said Chuck Grant, the assistant chief of administration for the Magnolia Fire Department, via email.

“Everything came out down to the red iron; the slab was modified for additional plumbing; the addition was set on the southern end of the building, and we built everything back,” Grant said.

The renovation, which started in late 2022 and was completed in late 2023, was fully funded by ESD 10 and cost $2.6 million, Grant said.

What they’re saying

  • “I am honored and delighted to celebrate the grand reopening of Station 183,” ESD 10 board President Larry Smith said. “This new facility will make a difference in many people’s lives.”
  • “The new Station 183 is much needed for our community and will help make Magnolia safer,” Grant said. “We are excited to give our firefighters a best-in-class station where they can feel safe and appreciated.”
