Fire Station 45 officially opens
Published on December 02, 2022
Fort Worth’s newest fire station officially opened Thursday with a ceremonial uncoupling of a fire hose by City dignitaries and partners.
The addition of Station 45, 1901 Quail Grove Drive in far north Fort Worth, will improve response time for emergency personnel across north Fort Worth, which has seen substantial population growth over the last 10 years.
The state-of-the-art fire station is in the Tehama Ridge/North Fort Worth Alliance neighborhood. Costing $6.4 million, the facility has multiple cancer prevention amenities and a tornado shelter with its own power and water supply.
Station 45 is a single-engine company. Twelve firefighters will be housed at the station, with four assigned to each of the three rotating 24-hour shifts.
The 10,953-square-foot station includes six bunk rooms, two officer quarters, a gear extractor with separate gear storage room and a decontamination area, and a three-apparatus bay.
Since becoming operational, the station has responded to an average of 15 calls per 24-hour shift. At this rate, crews are projected to run 5,400 calls this year.
