NEW Boca Raton Opens Fire Station 6

The City of Boca Raton Fire Rescue Services Department recently held a ribbon cutting ceremony on March 8, 2021, to open the new Fire Station 6 located at 1901 Clint Moore Road. The new station will house up to 10 crew members and will service an area in the northwestern part of the City limits.

The $5.2 million station features new and improved upgrades including: 

  • Four bays that will house a new engine truck, medical unit and two hazmat trucks
  • 8 unisex bathrooms to facilitate the decontamination of all crew members at the same time, in accordance with the national effort to prevent firefighter cancer (“Shower Within an Hour”)
  • Built to withstand 155 mph winds
  • Fire Rescue Services will also apply for a LEED certification for the new structure

Old Fire Station 6 was demolished in February 2020 and the new facility took 15 months to build. The station was built with Palm Beach County Surtax funds.
