Background

In November 2018, the City broke ground on two new stations to replace Stations 1 and 4.

 

The newest Station 1, which will replace the original downtown Station 1, is built on six acres located at the corner of West Gentry Boulevard and Palace Street. Jacobe Brothers is the general contractor for this project. The building is a five bay, approximately 18,000 square foot structure.  It will house the North Battalion Commander, Fire Engine 1, Fire Ladder 1, the Regional Hazardous Materials Trailer and pull vehicle and the Technical Rescue Trailer and pull vehicle. The station will be staffed with nine firefighters, including a battalion chief. It will also be the location of the Primary Emergency Operations Center.

 

Station 4 is built on 1.4 acres and is located at 7445 Cherryhill Dr. just south of Cumberland Parkway, replaces current Station 4 which is located on Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard. The general contractor is Garrett and Associates. Station 4 is approximately 11,000 square feet. It has three bays and will house Fire Engine 4, Brush Truck 4, and a reserve training engine. The station will be used as the recruit training station for the future Tyler Fire Department training academy.

 

Both stations were designed by Fitzpatrick Architects.
