On August 23, 2016, Bryan City Council approved the construction contract for LDF Construction, Inc. to build a new fire station replacing the existing facility originally built in 1967. The new station provides a modern, fully equipped facility for firefighters including new features such as adequate storage for lifesaving equipment; five apparatus bays for front-line vehicles and reserve apparatus; a professional training room; updated technology; and administrative space for the Bryan Fire Marshal’s Offices.
Fire Station No. 2 was relocated approximately six blocks north the station’s previous location at the corner of Dellwood and Cavitt to a vacant site along Lawrence Street between Cavitt and Maloney. The project was funded through the use of the 2016 Bond and Transportation Fund.
The public is welcome and invited to attend.
