The Frisco Fire Department will officially open and begin responding out of Fire Station 9 Friday afternoon.
Fire Station 9 is located at 15151 Donnie Mayfield Way near Preston Road and Rockhill Parkway. The station will open with a quint company and ambulance company.
Core Construction began work on Fire Station 9 in February 2018. The 14,000-square-foot station has two full bays, one half bay, 12 individual bedrooms, and implements the latest approaches to cancer prevention with a hot zone/cold zone concept and a vehicle exhaust point of capture system.
Fire Station 9 was built in conjunction with phase 1 of the Public Safety Training Center (PSTC). The PSTC is directly adjacent to Fire Station 9 and will train firefighters and police officers using a four-story 6,700-square-foot burn facility, 2,700-square-foot indoor/outdoor classroom, confined space/trench rescue prop, vehicle extrication pad, and a 300-foot by 600-foot driving pad. Construction on the PSTC is nearing completion and both police and firefighters are expected to begin training in the new complex in the near future.
Frisco Fire and Police Departments are planning a formal grand opening ceremony for both Fire Station 9 and the Public Safety Training Center that is expected to take place in September 2019 and will be open to the public.
