New Station 54 coming to Walden!

Montgomery County Emergency Service District #2/ MFD has recently secured land in Walden to construct a new fire station.
MCESD#2/MFD and MUD realized a few structural issues with the current fire station and have realized the best option would be to rebuild on current site or move locations. MCESD#2/MFD, MUD, and Walden CIA all agreed that the best service for the area would mean the fire station needed to stay in the Walden subdivision. All parties worked for a while and weighed all different options and finally agreed the best option would be some property that the Walden CIA owned. There was quite a bit of resurveying and replating that had to take place to allow this to occur. With COVID and a few other setbacks, this was finally accomplished within the last few weeks.

The advantage of a new piece of property to build on, allows the emergency responders to stay at the current location until the new facility is built. There were very limited options in the Walden subdivision for a temporary fire station to be placed, while the old station was demolished and a new one constructed. The new station will be at the corner of Emerson and Walden Road, right across the street from the current one. We look forward to constructing a new fire station to best serve the citizens of the Walden Peninsula. We are hoping to start construction sometime around July 2022 and completion around July 2023.

Montgomery County Emergency Service District #2/ MFD has recently secured land in Walden to construct a new fire station. MCESD#2/MFD wants to express our appreciation to a few of the people and organizations who assisted in this 5-year project of acquiring land. Thanks to the Board of both MUD 8 and MUD 9, General Managers Scott Sustman and Rusty Denner, and our architect Ricardo Martinez.

The Walden station responds to over 1000 calls a year. Most of the incidents are EMS related, but they also respond to MVA, fires, alarm calls, and a multitude of service calls. The station is currently staffed with 4 Firefighter/EMT 24 hours a day. #MFD5 #Station54
