NEW Saginaw Fire Station
On June 15, the City of Saginaw hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for the new Central Fire Station & Emergency Operations Center to be located at the corner of McLeroy and Amber. This will be located at the corner of McLeroy and Amber. The new building will meet the needs of the Saginaw Fire Department now and for the next 40+ years. None of this would be possible without the strong support of our community, Mayor Todd Flippo and the City Council, and the hard work of our Citizens Bond Committee. We are thankful for our Saginaw Fire Department, led by Chief Spears and Assistant Chief Craver, and to project manager, Assistant City Manager Dolph Johnson. Thanks and recognition are also in order for design firm BRW Architects and construction manager, Saginaw's own Steele & Freeman Inc. This facility will be a source of pride for the City of Saginaw for decades.

Fire Station No. 2 was built and opened in 2001. This station was established to provide quick emergency response to the growing population in the eastern portions of the city. This was becoming increasingly difficult due to navigating multiple and frequently blocked railroad crossings and the ever increasing roadway congestion.
The station is approximately 7,400 square foot and is equipped with a commercial grade kitchen / dining area, sleeping and restroom accommodations for up to six on-duty personnel, a well equipped exercise area, offices, a common day / congregation room, and a training room. The facility is equipped with back-up generator power to ensure the station and its personnel can continuously function and respond to emergencies under any conditions.
Fire Station No. 1 was originally built in 1974, and was operated through the highly dedicated service of volunteer firefighters. Through the years the station has went through numerous renovations and an eventual transition to a fully paid career department.
In 2007, the facility went through a major renovation and expansion. The expansion was made possible due to the adjoining Police Department relocating to new facilities. The Fire Station is now a 10,000 square foot first class facility with a commercial grade kitchen / dining area, sleeping and restroom accommodations for up to six on-duty personnel, a well equipped exercise area, offices, and a common day / congregation room.
Fire Administration Offices
The recently vacated and adjoining Police Department was built in 1966, and originally served as the City's Municipal Building simultaneously housing City Hall, the Police Department, and the City Library. This 6,000 square foot portion of the facility also underwent major renovations and now houses the fire administration offices, the Tarrant County Fire Alarm Center (TCFAC), the City's Emergency Operations Center (EOC), and a large multimedia equipped training room.
The fire station, the TCFAC, and the EOC are equipped with back-up generator power to ensure the department and its personnel can continuously manage, coordinate, and respond to all emergencies under any conditions. This 16,000 square foot (combined) facility will serve the needs of the Fire Department for many years and is designed to accommodate any future growth within the department.
Positive relations with our city and surrounding community are vitally important to our department and staff. Both Saginaw fire stations as well as the administration facilities are always open to visitors. Each year the department provides numerous tours to school groups, child care, and scout organizations, as well as other civic and social groups.
Tours typically range from 25 to 45 minutes and consist of a facility and apparatus tour along with a brief explanation of equipment and department capabilities, all being age-appropriate.
To guarantee that your visit is a memorable and informative, we do ask that you contact us to schedule a date and time for your visit. This will ensure that adequate personnel are available to greet and guide you on your visit.
