Canyon Creek Fire/EMS Station breaks ground 

On January 30, a groundbreaking ceremony took place for a joint fire/EMS station in the Canyon Creek area of Austin.

Council Member Alison Alter, District 10, was at the event at 9804 N RM 620, located near The Austin Stone Northwest church.

Alter set a plan in 2018 to build and staff five new fire/EMS stations in six years, and this is one of those stations — in a high wildfire risk area.

“In 2018, I set an ambitious goal to build and renovate five new fire/EMS stations,” Alter shared. “Today I am proud to advance our work to improve emergency response times and wildfire preparedness in my district and across the city. I am grateful to my colleagues and to City staff for supporting this important public safety infrastructure.”
