Edinburg Breaks Ground for New Fire Station on North Side
Edinburg, Texas (May 10, 2017) – The City of Edinburg and the Edinburg Fire Department broke ground for the construction of Fire Station 5 in north Edinburg. Fire Station 5 will be located at 8502 North Jasman Road.
The 9,000 square foot facility will be the first fire station in the north part of the City and will serve this growing area of town.
According to Fire Chief Shawn Snider, the location of Fire Station 5 will allow a faster response time to any emergency that may present itself in north Edinburg.
Fire Station 5 will be a full service station with four fire trucks and one ambulance, and will be equipped with dormitories, a kitchen, and a workout area to house up to 10 firefighters and two ambulance attendants.
“Today is a very exciting day for us. It gives me great pleasure to be here to begin the construction of this facility,” Mayor Richard H. Garcia said. “These are the types of projects that touch my heart because we are providing the tools needed to save lives and property. Our residents deserve that and more.”
The completion for the facility is expected to be in early 2018.
