The City of Sand Springs Fire Department is hosting a grand opening celebration for the
newly-constructed Fire Station No. 2.
The new station, at 4201 South 113th W. Avenue in Sand Springs, will have its grand opening on Saturday, September 22nd, beginning with a presentation and speakers at noon.
The ribbon cutting will happen at about 12:45 p.m.
Members of the media and the general public are invited to attend.
Following those ceremonies, the public is invited to enjoy tours of the new fire station, FREE hot dogs, and children’s activities (including inflatables) at the station until 4 p.m.
Fire Chief Mike Wood and his staff said they are excited to share this state of the art public facility and invites families to meet their neighborhood firefighter.
“We’re looking forward to meeting some of the citizens of Sand Springs again to not only share with them
our appreciation for their support of this new facility, but to also offer tours of the station and meet some of our firefighters,” said Chief Wood.
The new facility was funded through a Sand Springs Public Safety Tax, dedicated to funding facilities such as the new fire station, but also for critical equipment for both police and fire. With public
improvements like this, the city continues to demonstrate its commitment to investing in the community and improving public safety.
“Fire stations like these only come along once every few decades for any community”, said City Manager Elizabeth Gray, “and we are eager to show the citizens the results of their support and the well thought out professional design and construction that went into this new facility. ”
“We’re pleased to show them the added safety value for surrounding neighborhoods and the larger Sand Springs community.”
Sand Springs Fire Department staff moved into the facility on July 23 and began operations there
immediately. The older station was demolished shortly afterwards.
