Irving Fire Station 8 Design Completed

The City of Irving recently completed the design plans for the new Fire Station 8, which will relocate from 650 E. Las Colinas Blvd. to the former DART Transit Station at 5601 Riverside Drive.

The current fire station was built in 1984 and sits on 1.1 acres adjacent to the DART Orange Line. The location does not offer space to house all of the station’s equipment, including Fire Boat 8.

Since the fire station was established in the Las Colinas Urban Center, the area has surged with residential and business activity. Irving Fire Department (IFD) has seen call volumes increase by 50% in the area over the past several years. With the rise of apartments, the Toyota Music Factory and the soon to be completed Wells Fargo campus along Lake Carolyn, IFD's Fire Station No. 8 is moving to a larger site and better location to provide exceptional services and response times that residents depend on.

The new site will sit on 2.8 acres and provide enough space for the station to house its current equipment along with any modifications or advancements in fire safety technology.

Construction on the new fire station will break ground in late summer.
