[ARCHIVED] Open House at Fire Station 3 Planned for Saturday

Fire Station 3 Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

The Las Cruces Fire Department will host an open house Saturday at the newly constructed Fire Station 3.

The open house will be from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 15, at Fire Station 3, 380 N. Valley Drive.
Bottled water, sodas and light snacks will be provided. Firefighters will give tours of the new facility. LCFD’s inflatable Fire Safety House will be erected outside to help teach youth how to safely escape a burning building.

Fire Station 3 replaced a 55-year-old station built in 1967 and is just north of the new station. The new Fire Station 3 houses Engine 3 and Squad 3 providing fire protection and emergency medical services for west Las Cruces.

The new 12,250 square foot Fire Station 3 sits on an approximate 1.5-acre parcel, has three apparatus bays and a capacity for as many as 10 firefighters per shift.

The Fire Station 3 project was approved by voters in the City’s General Obligation Bond special election in 2018. The cost of Fire Station 3 is approximately $6.2 million out of a total of $35.6 million GO Bond. Other projects in the 2018 GO Bond include the East Mesa Public Recreation Complex, which is currently under construction, and improvements to recreational facilities, parks and trails.
On Nov. 8, voters will be asked to consider four new General Obligation Bond projects: 

  • $10 million for Fire Station 9.
  • $2 million for parks improvements.
  • $5 million for Phase 2 of the East Mesa Public Recreation Complex.
  • $6 million for the Affordable Housing Fund.

These projects will not increase the City’s portion of the property tax rate.
