Old Fire Station on South Elm Reopens

The City of Broken Arrow announces the temporary reopening of an old fire station, located at 2900 S. Elm Place, which closed in 2012 after a new fire station was built to replace it. In December 2012, all personnel and equipment from the old fire station on Elm moved to the new location at 2300 West Norfolk Drive, now known as Fire Station Number (No.) 2.

Over time, as the City’s population has grown, the Broken Arrow Fire Department’s calls for response have also increased. In an effort to minimize response times in the south part of Broken Arrow, the City will reopen the old fire station on January 19, 2016. The facility will remain open until the construction of Fire Station No. 3 is completed. The City is currently in the process of acquiring land for a new Fire Station No. 3, which will be located in the southeast part of Broken Arrow.

“The reopening of the old fire station, which will be our seventh fire station, will help our first responders get to citizens faster,” said Fire Chief Jeremy Moore. “Thanks to voter approval to renew Vision 2025, we now have the resources available to open a seventh fire station, in order to better serve our citizens.”

The old fire station on Elm Place will initially be staffed by three firefighters with an Advanced Life Support Fire Engine. An ambulance will be added as staffing and other apparatus become available.
