Station 2: The Farm House
Fire protection in Celina has expanded on the western side of the City, there is now a second fire station in the Light Farms neighborhood. The City of Celina held a Grand Opening on January 31 for Fire Station No. 2 at 1805 Light Farms Way, Celina. The station was operational on January 24, when they responded to their first call from the new location.
Construction began in 2018 with the goal of getting something completed quickly to accommodate the rapid growth. Celina Fire Chief Mark Metdker said, “Celina is spread over so much land area, it’s difficult to cover the entire city with just one ambulance, so the new station houses a second ambulance and an additional fire engine.” One of Celina FD’s two brush trucks was moved to Station 2, as well. The City received $2,557,440 dollars in grant money from the Staffing for Adequate Fire & Emergency Response (SAFER) to staff the new station.
“This opening is a commitment to a pledge made to serve Western Celina with the first-rate fire protection that we deliver elsewhere,” Chief Metdker said. “Fire Station 2 will secure the future, covering one of the fastest-growing areas of our community.” There will be an Open House for the public on Saturday, February 29th from 10:00am – 2:00pm. There will be station tours, activities, giveaways and lunch will be provided. Please join in the fun and the excitement at 1805 Light Farms Way!
