League City’s Fire Station #2 Holds Community Open House on Saturday, October 4th

The City  of League City – “The City of League City will hold a ribbon cutting and open house to dedicate the newly expanded Fire Station # 2 at 2120 Hobbs Rd. The ceremony is scheduled for Saturday, October 4, at 10 am.

The expansion will also mark the consolidation of EMS Station # 2 and Fire Station # 2. EMS Station # 2 employees previously worked from a station at 409 Newport Blvd. However, the relocation will place the ambulance and personnel more centrally within the response district with better access to major roadways.

Additionally, the expansion will provide facilities to accommodate 24 hours a day and 7 days a week staffing of fire and EMS personnel at Station #2. This expansion and remodel included sleeping quarters, kitchen facilities and additional office space. This consolidation also reduces overhead incurred by the city for operational costs.

“We are excited to have this project complete. It assists us in improving the level of emergency services provided to the citizens of League City,” said Fire Chief Brad Goudie. “We are also pleased to be able to showcase the new facility during the ribbon cutting and open house,” Goudie said.

The ceremony and open house will include a tour of the facility, a closer look at the apparatus and will also provide an opportunity for residents to get more information on both the League City Volunteer Fire Department and the League City EMS.”

The League City Fire Department has a paid fire chief, but the department is comprised of 100% volunteers (of just over 120 individuals). It is the Mission of the League City Fire Department to preserve life and property, promote public safety and foster economic growth through leadership, management and actions, as an all-risk life safety response provider that is committed to superior service to our customers, the citizens and visitors of League City. For more information about the fire department, visit their webpage.
