MEDIA ADVISORY/NEWS RELEASE - Fire Station 3

Update - November 17, 2021

This evening, November 17th, 2021, we received good news on Fire Station 3 from the environmental specialist company. The test results did not produce any harmful specimens, nor did it show any mycotoxin producing fungi, commonly known as “black mold.” There are some minor issues with the station that were identified that will require some remediation which we plan to begin in the coming days, but nothing that will impact the health and safety of our firefighters. The building has been deemed safe to live and work in.

Effective immediately, Station 3’s Fire Company will be assigned back to Station 3 and operating out of their district. We would like to thank our mutual aid partners for the assistance during this time. As always, our goal is to provide exceptional service to the residents of Haltom City.

Saturday, November 13, 2021

On Friday evening, November 12th, 2021, Haltom City Fire Department was notified that samples collected during the maintenance of the HVAC system at Haltom City Fire Department Station 3, located at 4849 NE Loop 820, came back positive for mold. The Fire Department worked with Risk Management and a third-party vendor was immediately contacted to perform additional tests. These tests showed that the humidity levels in the station were high, and the vendor implemented mitigation measures to lower the levels and recommended that an environmental specialist perform more tests.

In effort to protect the health and safety our firefighters, Station 3’s Fire Company was immediately temporarily reassigned to respond and house out of Station 1. The City’s mutual aid partners are aware of the situation and are assisting with responding to the northern end of our city as needed to ensure service to the residents of Haltom City and the surrounding communities.

An environmental specialist company has been contacted to come out and evaluate the building and provide further information on the results and any possible mitigation guidance to protect our firefighters. This temporary reassignment will remain in effect until we receive guidance from the environmental specialists.

The new Fire Station 3 is currently under construction, and we look forward to it opening in the early months of 2022.
