Today, the McKinney Fire Department held a groundbreaking ceremony for Fire Station 10. The station will serve the fast-growing Trinity Falls community in the northern part of the city. The 16,000-square-foot facility will sit on three acres, include three apparatus bays and will accommodate up to 10 firefighters. There will also be a community room for use by the public. McKinney Fire Station 10 will be completed in spring 2020.
“When it is completed, Station 10 will help us get to any emergency scene in the Trinity Falls area within four minutes, which is essential in life safety and is also essential in putting out a fire in its earliest stages,” said McKinney Fire Chief Danny Kistner.
