When the city of South Pa­dre Island bid farewell to Hur­ricane Dolly in 2008, amongst other things, they also said good-bye to the original fire station.

On Tuesday, June 14, city staff, council members and fire department staff came together to break ground to mark the rebuilding of the city’s original fire station.

The SPI Fire Department, Emergency Medical Services and Beach Patrol have been housed in the old city hall since Dolly struck. Though they were thankful for a place of operation, it was a far cry from what they needed to best serve the community.
