Police & Fire Station
Our police and fire departments are currently housed in construction trailers. This is a temporary, and costly, solution to the old police and fire building being contaminated with mold. The temporary facilities are less than ideal. The police department no longer has a jail, and the fire department is a block away from most of their equipment. Both of these conditions reduce our first responders' ability to provide the best service possible.
The new facility will provide a fire station that can house all the fire apparatuses as well as plenty of room for the fire crew that lives there. The new police station will include a municipal jail which will keep our officers in Ferris instead of transporting prisoners to Red Oak. The new stations will also provide some extra room for both departments that have outgrown their current space.
Below is a slideshow of the current police and fire stations.
