Broken Arrow Officials Commemorate New Fire Station

Posted: Updated:

Officials were on hand during a ceremony Monday morning to commemorate a new fire station in south Broken Arrow.

Replacing the fire station on S. Elm Place, local officials held a grand opening ceremony this morning at the new building located at 2300 W. Norfolk Dr.

"We anticipated growth in the southern portions of Broken Arrow which is why we strategically placed this station near the Creek Turnpike," Fire Chief Jeff VanDolah said. "With the announcement of Warren Theatre and the Shops at Aspen Creek last month, we are even more fortunate to have this station opening in its current location."

According to the City of Broken Arrow, this will be the city's second-largest fire station with 18 firefighters, 1 ambulance, a fire truck and eventually a brush unit.

Construction began on the new facility in September 2011. Funded through a 2004 bond issue, $3 million and 11,848- square-foot facility will service the town of nearly 100,000.
