A ceremony to celebrate the grand opening of the City’s Fire Station 53 is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 26, 2009. The ceremony will be held at the site of the new station, 2804 W. Gowan Road, adjacent to Desert Horizons Park, east of Simmons Street.
The 15,000 square-foot structure sits on 1.5 acres and is expected to house up to 14 personnel, one fire engine and a rescue unit. The project cost is estimated at $4.7 million.
The new fire station replaces the City’s old fire station at 3001 Martin Luther King Blvd. For more information, contact Captain Cedric Williams at (702) 633-1111.
