The city of Bryant will break ground on two new fire stations after years of firefighters working out of mobile homes, Mayor Jill Dabbs has announced.

The first ceremony will be 10 a.m. Jan. 23 near Springhill Elementary School on Northlake Road, according to a news release.

The second ceremony will be at the same time Jan. 30 near the Hill Farm Elementary School campus at the corner of Reynolds and Hill Farm roads.

Mobile homes are currently used for two of the city’s three fire stations.

“Bryant firefighters have been working out of mobile homes for many years. I am thrilled they will have better stations in which to serve our citizens from in the future,” Dabbs said in the release.

“These stations will be very important community anchors at both of these locations and will improve our response time for emergencies and improve our fire service to the airport.”

To build the fire stations, along with other city improvements, Bryant voters approved extending the city’s 0.5 percent sales tax in 2016. Citizens also approved the use of bond refinancing to carry out municipal projects, including the stations.

Groundwork is already underway at both locations, the release said. Baldwin & Shell, the construction company contracted by the city to oversee the bond projects, estimated both facilities will be complete by November.
