Plans for a temporary fire unit to serve the southern area of Schertz have been finalized. As of April 30, Engine 3 began operating out of the temporary Fire Station #3 located at the Cibolo Creek Municipal Authority (CCMA) property on Trainer Hale Road, approximately 0.5 miles north of IH-10.
“We recognize the need to have a fire department presence in southern Schertz sooner than later, and the temporary station is a transitionary solution while we await the completion of Fire Station 3,” commented Fire Chief, Kade Long.
The city continues to work out details for the permanent Fire Station #3. The design is still being adjusted, as size and scope alterations are being made to accommodate the budget of the project. The station is being designed and refined by BRW (Brown Reynolds Watford) Architects and design plans are expected to be complete by May 2018.
The station will be located near the intersection of Lower Seguin Road and FM 1518. The selected parcel of land was purchased in December of 2017.
