Open House scheduled for two new Joplin fire stations

NEWS RELEASE ISSUED BY THE CITY OF JOPLIN

Joplin Mayor Melodee Colbert-Kean, City officials, and the Joplin Area Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors invite the public to join them in a Ribbon Cutting and Open House for the two new fire stations in Joplin. Stations #2 and #4 were recently completed after they were destroyed in the 2011 tornado.

A Ribbon Cutting for Station #2, 2825 West Junge Boulevard (northeast corner of 13th & Schifferdecker), is set for 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, January 23, with an open house and tours following until 5 p.m. A Ribbon Cutting for Station #4, 3402 Hearnes Boulevard, will be held later that day at 1:30 p.m. and their open house and tour opportunities will run until 7 p.m.

Both stations were razed as a result of the damage sustained in the 2011 disaster and temporary facilities were erected in their place until construction of the replacement stations was completed. After an extensive review of the Fire Department’s coverage area and growth of the City, the Joplin City Council approved two new locations to rebuild these stations. These new locations afford the opportunity for the department to provide better coverage, and help to meet the four-minute response time goals for the entire city. The Joplin Fire Department currently provides emergency services to the community’s 45 square miles from the six fire stations.
