City of La Marque and La Marque Fire Department planned the Fire Station Celebration Parade on Saturday, April 28, 2018, to celebrate La Marque's new Central Fire Station and Administration Building located at Saltgrass Point Boulevard and Texas Avenue in La Marque, Texas. All citizens from La Marque and surrounding communities were invited to attend. The new fire complex is La Marque first-ever capital project developed, funded and constructed for a La Marque public service entity.
"The project is a milestone for La Marque and will have incomprehensible impact on the delivery of quality public services affecting the preservation of live and property for untold decades throughout our great community," said La Marque Fire Chief Gerald Grimm. "the Fire Station will be home to a first line apparatus and mobile intensive care medic unit. The new station will better serve a significant segment of our community experiencing rapid commercial and residential growth along the I-45 corridor."
