SMFD held a soft Grand Opening for Station #2

Full Station 1

San Marcos Fire Department hosted a small, socially-distanced grand opening ceremony on Wednesday, December 30, 2020. This ceremonially marked the opening of its newest fire station #2.  This station is located off Ranch Road 12 in the La Cima neighborhood.

San Marcos’ previous fire station #2 was located on Academy Street in a small duplex building built in 1954. The new one, which was built as a part of the 2017 city bond, is better equipped for a growing department and city.

The new Station 2 will house firefighters and support staff safely, comfortably and efficiently so when they hear the tones they will be ready to respond to San Marcos' residence

“We didn’t build a fire station where the city needed it 10 years ago,” Stephens said. “We built a fire station where the city needs it 10 years from now and for the next 50 years. The citizens of San Marcos, our mayor and council should be proud to be so proactive and so forward-looking to  have something in an area that it doesn’t look like it’s  quite ready for us but it’s going to be here soon and we’re here ahead of it and ready to take care of it.”

The ceremony ended with Engine 2 driving out of the bay.  The exit out was only ceremonial but it marked the grand opening Station #2.
