Fire Station 13 Celebrates Grand Opening

Posted: Updated:

Fire Station 13 in Amarillo marked it's grand opening Saturday, with an open house.

Firefighters say they are pleased to officially open their doors and offer their services to Southwest Amarillo.

"It serves a great purpose, of putting extra personal, extra units on this side of town to help coverage, because the original problem was population density, and the amount of calls being received," said Captain Jacob Oehlert.

The Mayor, City Commissioners, and members of the public were also in attendance for the traditional spraying of the hose to commemorate the grand opening.
