PROSPER (January 31, 2022) Progress is being made with the construction of Prosper Fire Rescue’s new Central Fire Station. The community is invited to attend a special groundbreaking ceremony on Friday, February 11 at 10 a.m. located at 911 Safety Way. Hear from Mayor Ray Smith, Town Manager Harlan Jefferson, Prosper Fire Rescue Chief Stuart Blasingame and representatives from Pogue Construction and BRW Architects Inc.
Mobilization of the construction trailer and dirt work has begun. The site will remain under construction for the next several months and the building is expected to go vertical as early as the end of June or the beginning of July.
The building is 30,800 square feet and will include Central Fire Station and Fire Administration which will also house the Fire Marshal’s Office. Fire Administration will be located on the 2nd floor and accessible through the public lobby. The building will have a dual-purpose executive conference room that can easily transition to the Town’s Emergency Operations Center.
It will have 4 pull-through apparatus bays and two additional apparatus bays orienting to the front of the building. One of the bays will house the 9/11 World Trade Center Mobile Memorial steel beam. The fire station is designed to accommodate a truck company, engine company, ambulance and Battalion Chief with sleeping quarters for up to 13 firefighters. The fire station was designed for direct and speedy access to the apparatus bay to maximize response time.
This will be phase 2 of the public safety complex directly west of the police building that opened in October 2020. This project was approved by the residents in the November 2020 bond election site and will include a future public safety training facility for both fire and police that will be constructed later as phase 3 of the complex. Substantial Completion is anticipated in February with Final Completion estimated between March-May 2023. Renderings of the new facility can be made available upon request.
