City of Shreveport to Open New Fire Station in Southern Hills


The City of Shreveport will have a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday to celebrate the grand reopening of Fire Station 17 in the Southern Hills Community.

“We are excited about this new facility and glad to be able to open this station again for our citizens,” said Mayor Ollie Tyler.

The grand reopening ceremony for Station 17 will be held at 4 p.m., Wednesday, April 4, at its new location, 2901 Baird Road.

The $2.4 million station was approved by voters in the 2011 Bond Election. The 11,242 -square-foot facility will help reduce response times by the Fire Department in the Southern Hills area. It consists of a commercial-grade kitchen, a day room, an exercise room, Captain’s dormitories, and three engine bays.

“The people living in the Southern Hills Community will feel an immediate impact of service through faster response times by the busiest fire station in the City of Shreveport,’’ said Chief Scott Wolverton.
