Stations and Locations

Richardson got its first volunteer fire department in 1926. The department was part volunteer and part paid from 1956 to 1963, at which time it became a completely paid department. The first fire engine purchased was a 35 horsepower Reo Truck, which was kept in the City building located at Main Street and Greenville Avenue. This structure was originally built in 1954 and was remodeled in 1980. Population increase in Richardson prompted the building of Fire Station #2 in 1962 (rebuilt in 2009).

Station 1

136 N. Greenville Ave


 1009 N. Waterview Pkwy.

As the northwest section of Richardson grew, another fire station was required. Fire Station #3 was constructed in 1967 and was designed to blend in with the surrounding neighborhood.  Fire Station #4 was constructed in 1973 and was rebuilt at a new location in 2012.

As northern Richardson grew, Fire Station #5 was constructed in 1987. Fire Station #5 is located directly adjacent to the Richardson Police Department Substation.

In February 2001, Fire Station #6 was constructed and placed into operation to service the panhandle section of Richardson. Fire Station #6 also provides mutual aid to the neighboring City of Garland. The station was built on approximately 1.24 acres of land and overlooks beautiful Breckinridge Park. It has a residential style of architecture, with gabled roofs and natural stone veneers which blend well with the architecture of surrounding neighborhood structures. The interior of the station includes six dormitory-style sleeping rooms, a separate Captain’s office and sleeping area, a fitness room, kitchen, and separate restrooms for male and female personnel. Next to the apparatus bay are areas for storage lockers, the SCBA air compressor, a shop, and a decontamination room.
