The City of Boca Raton Fire Rescue Services Department held a ribbon cutting ceremony on March 8, 2021, to open the new Fire Station 6 located at 1901 Clint Moore Road. Those in attendance included fire administration and personnel, City Council Members, and other dignitaries. The new station will house up to 10 crew members and will service an area in the northwestern part of the City limits.
“The construction of this new building incorporates all of the best design features we have in our other stations,” commented Fire Rescue Chief Tom Wood. “The new facility will provide the highest level of safety for our fire rescue personnel as we continue to protect and serve our community.”
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.
“This state-of-the-art rebuild is part of our commitment to public safety,” said Mayor Scott Singer. “We are proud to have the best first responders and police officers who maintain our superior quality of life and this new station continues that commitment to service.”
