Midland's newest fire station is open and running and has its official grand opening on Wednesday April 26, 2017.

According to the City of Midland, firefighters have already moved in to the new station #6 located at 301 N. Tradewinds Blvd. close to the Scharbauer Sports Complex, but the official grand opening will be held at 2:30 this Wednesday, April 26.

The new station #6 was a $4.4 million project and features three engine bays, a study, kitchen, and housing area for firefighters and paramedics.

A small police substation is also included on the south side of the building and will serve as a place where police that are far away from the downtown station can get necessary duties done while on shift.
