The City of Pearland held the Grand Opening and ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Fire Station #3, located at 3207 Yost Rd, on Saturday (Jan. 9). City leaders, Fire and Police Department employees and members of the community came out to enjoy the food, tour the facility and get a close-up look at the equipment.
The single-story station is designed to support up to 10 full-time staff members, with two pumper trucks, one ladder truck, one rescue truck and two ambulances. Employees at this station will provide fire and rescue response, emergency medical response and fire inspections.
