Ribbon Cutting Held For Newly Rebuilt Fire Station

CREATED Jan 15, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A ribbon-cutting was held Wednesday morning for a newly rebuilt fire station in Nashville.

Mayor Karl Dean, Councilmember Edith Langster, and Director Chief Rick White were on hand for the ribbon cutting at Fire Station 11 at 1745 D.B. Todd Boulevard.

Construction began in October of 2012 with the demolition of the existing station which has been replaced with a $4.5 million state of the art facility, constructed to last for more than 50 years.

During construction, Station 11's pumper was relocated to Station 24 on Clarksville Highway and the ambulance temporarily relocated to Station 2, located at 2nd and Gay Street downtown.

The new Station 11 is the sixth and final ground up station to be rebuilt since 2012 in a multi-part fire station capital improvement project.
