Irving: Investing in Our Future

Move-In Day Nears for New Fire Station No. 4

Exterior of the new Fire Station 4 in Irving.

The finishing touches are underway, and the Fire Department’s Station No. 4 firefighters and EMTs are ready to bring in their gear and equipment.

Located at 800 Metker St. near Toler Lane, the more than 8,000-square-foot station sits on a 1.9-acre site and will house five firefighters: three on a pumper engine and two on an ambulance. The new Fire Station No. 4 replaces the current 60-year-old facility on MacArthur Boulevard.

The city considered remodeling and adding to the current location, but the updates and land purchase needed would cost more than constructing a new facility. The new station will be energy efficient and LEED-compliant. In addition, a bigger apparatus bay will accommodate today’s larger vehicles, and the bathrooms and showers are positioned between the bay and living quarters to minimize exposure to hazardous contaminants.

Most important, the new location will provide better response times to the eastern sections of central and south central Irving, a critical component to the city’s ISO-1, Public Protection Classification. A copy of Irving’s ISO-1 designation letter can be downloaded from the Fire Department’s website at CityofIrving.org/ISO-1.
