Station 52 Project Updates

Note: Scroll down to the bottom for the latest update

February 3 – Following final approval by the Cypress Creek EMS Board of Directors, the project to build a new Station 52 is underway. The septic tank is being moved, the old parking lot has been removed and site preparation is underway for the footprint new station.

It will be finished when it’s finished. Construction timelines depend on factors like weather and as we learned during the construction of Station 513 timelines can change drastically.

When it is done, it’ll look something like this.

The old Station 52 was torn down due to the upcoming widening of Treaschwig. The new Station 52 and parking lot are being built further back on our property. Since last Summer (2016), Medic 52 has been housed at Spring Fire Department Station Station 73 at 4923 Treaschwig just about a mile down the road. Our thanks to the Spring Fire Department. With any luck and good weather, Medic 52 could be in its new home by Summer of this year (2017).
