A thorough renovation project has wrapped up at Victoria Fire Department Station One, 606 E. Goodwin Avenue, equipping the station to continue serving the community for many years to come.

The Victoria Fire Department on Sept. 6 hosted a ribbon-cutting at the new station that was attended by City and County leadership; community members; and local stakeholders, including the fire department’s partners in the medical sector.

Previously, Station One had not undergone significant remodeling during its 40-year lifespan. In addition, the roof still had leaks and damage from Hurricane Harvey and previous storms.

“We are excited to be back open, and we look forward to serving the southside out of the new facility for another 40 years,” said Fire Chief Tracy Fox.

In addition to the roof repairs, the newly remodeled fire station includes:

  • Building under construction with exposed roof frameworkA backup generator
  • Structural support capable of withstanding a Category 3 hurricane
  • Individual sleeping quarters
  • Improved restrooms, living spaces and office spaces
  • A conference room that will be open to nonprofits and community groups
  • Landscaping improvements
