Dallas Fire-Rescue Recommend Replacement of Station 41

Dallas Fire-Rescue recommended the replacement of fire station 41, also known as Preston-Royal Fire Department, in the 5900 block of Royal Lane, just west of Preston-Royal Village in a presentation for the proposed 2017 bond program to the Public Safety Committee Oct. 10.

Some issues with the 5,585 square-foot station, which was built in 1958, include inadequate areas for gear storage, undersized bays, poor sewage, insufficient parking, and difficulty maneuvering into bays.

This recommendation comes almost a year after the completion of fire station 27 off of Northwest Highway, which opened two years after its scheduled completion. If the bond passes, the proposed replacement would cost $11.3 million of the proposed $220 million program.
