City officials celebrated the next step in bringing in Coppell’s fourth fire station Tuesday with a groundbreaking ceremony.
The new station will be located at 440 Northpoint Drive, just north of Wagon Wheel Park.
The fire station is expected to be open in December.
“The addition of Fire Station No. 4 will allow the Fire Department to continue to meet safe and effective response and service levels associated with recent growth and development, particularly commercial development on the city's west side,” a press release stated. “The new station will also provide a larger number of residents with necessary services and help the city maintain its ISO-1 rating, which lowers homeowner and business insurance premiums and provides residents with the highest level of protection and emergency responsiveness.”
Residents who are interested in filing to run for the Coppell City Council can do so before Feb. 14.
Places 1, 3, 5 and 7 are up for election this year. The election is May 2.
Applications, forms, and information regarding running for elected office can be found at coppelltx.gov/election.
