Houston Fire Station 24 At 2625 Reed Rd.


Recommended Posts

The Houston Fire Department will be building a new fire station at Highway 288 and Reed Road, Houston City Council Member Wanda Adams announced Tuesday. The City will break ground for construction Thursday.

"This new fire station is in keeping with my commitment to the safety of District D residents," Council Member Adams said. "Anyone who has been in an emergency knows that every second counts, and with this new station, South Houston residents will see marked improvements in the City's response times."

The new station, Station 24, will serve an area that has long had a gap in service. It will not only improve response times in the areas served by the new station, it will also improve response times at nearby stations, which will no longer need to respond to emergencies in the new station's area.

Station 24, which will house one fire engine and one medic unit, has been on the Fire Department's five-year plan since 1991. It will be built with $5 million from a Community Development Block Grant. Construction is scheduled to be completed in October 2010.
