The South Padre Island Fire Station No. 1 opened its doors on Patriot Day this month. A piece of the World Trade Center was unveiled and rededicated in front of the firehouse to honor those servicemen on the 11th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on New York City.
The building will replace four other city buildings and house a training center, fire station, living space for firemen, EMS services and Beach Patrol. It will be operational by October 1st. Be sure to drive by to check it out. It is a beautiful building and a real asset for South Padre Island.
