Forney’s New Interim Fire Facility

On Saturday July 1st 2023, the City of Forney held an opening ceremony for the new interim facility for the Forney Fire Department. Located at 12491 Windy Ln, the new station and new Engine #3 will service the areas south of the railroad tracks until a new larger full station can be built by the city. The city worked in conjunction with the Emergency Service District #6 which services areas outside of city limits around the Forney area.

The funding came from previous incumbent money in the budget to add temporary housing, and other necessary upgrades to the ESD 6 facility. A new engine was purchased and brought to fill one of the bays, and potentially other equipment can be brought in. This location has filled a much requested coverage for the southside, particularly with the concerns of the trains blocking or delaying service from current station 1 and 2.
