Join City Officials and Residents for a ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony for the new Fire Station 71 on Friday, August 17 at 5 p.m.
Fire Station 71, built in 1976, is the second oldest and second busiest station in Coral Springs. Initially, it was intended to service volunteer firefighters and, as a result, it was not built with the proper sleeping quarters, training space or equipment.
The new fire station will contain approximately 7,000 square feet in floor area, three bays, and state-of-the-art bi-fold doors. Additional space will be used to store protective equipment and for training. Construction began in January 2012 and was completed on schedule and under budget.
We look forward to having the residents and local business community be part of this opening ceremony,” – Fire Chief Mark Curran.
Families with children are encouraged to attend as a station tour will follow the ribbon cutting ceremony. The station is located South of Wiles Road off of Coral Ridge Drive at 11800 N.W. 41 Street within the Corporate Park.
