The new Haltom City Fire Station #3, located at 5011 Old Denton Rd., is now in operation and is housing shifts. Expected to be the busiest fire station in the city, Station #3 will house eight firefighters, one front line engine, one ladder truck and one reserve engine. The new Station #3 replaces the now decommissioned station that was under the IH820 water tower.
Architecturally, the new fire station brings state of the art facilities to north Haltom City. A cost efficient solution, the new building was constructed using pre-engineered steel framing systems. The environmentally efficient envelope enclose the functional spaces within a masonry and stucco skin. The roof is constructed of an insulated metal panel system that provides an energy code compliant system that sandwiches 6” rigid foam between metal interior and exterior skins, leaving clean surfaces on both sides and eliminating the need for secondary interior ceiling systems (which age more rapidly).
