Prosper Fire Rescue is pleased to invite the community to the highly anticipated uncoupling ceremony of the new Prosper Central Fire Station. This state-of-the-art facility, encompassing 30,800 square feet, will be a significant addition to the Town of Prosper’s public safety infrastructure, ensuring the highest level of protection and service for the community.
Designed with the utmost consideration for efficiency and accessibility, the Prosper Central Fire Station will house both the Central Fire Station and Fire Administration. Among its remarkable features, the building will boast a dual-purpose executive conference room, seamlessly transitioning to the Town’s Emergency Operations Center, enhancing the ability to respond swiftly and effectively to any situation. This new facility will also house the Fire Marshal’s Office, a fitness facility and a special 9/11 museum that will be open to the public.
The new facility will have four (4) pull-through apparatus bays, alongside two additional apparatus bays. Of special significance, one of these bays will proudly safeguard the 9/11 World Trade Center Mobile Memorial steel beam, serving as a poignant reminder of our commitment to public safety and honoring the sacrifices made by first responders.
Designed to accommodate a truck company, engine company, ambulance and Battalion Chief, the fire station will also provide comfortable sleeping quarters for up to 13 firefighters, ensuring that our brave first responders are well-rested and ready to serve at a moment’s notice. The layout has been strategically planned to ensure direct and swift access to the apparatus bay, optimizing response times.
This incredible project marks phase 2 of the public safety complex, situated directly west of the Prosper Police Station that opened in October 2020. It brings to fruition the collective vision of our residents and Town Council, who overwhelmingly approved the initiative during the November 2020 bond election. As we look towards the future, we are excited to announce that phase 3 of the complex will include a public safety training facility for both fire and police, enhancing our preparedness and proficiency further.
We cordially invite all members of the public and media to join us for the uncoupling ceremony of the Prosper Central Fire Station on August 8 at 9 a.m. located at 911 Safety Way. Together, we will celebrate this momentous occasion to get an exciting glimpse into this new public safety facility that will serve the Prosper community for decades to come.
