The grand opening is slated to be a family-friendly open house style event with a ribbon cutting ceremony, truck push-in ceremony, station tours, demonstrations, a bounce house for the kids.

Several short speeches are planned, followed by a ribbon cutting ceremony.

The truck push-in ceremony will involve the public and CFVFD members participating. In addition to a CFVFD driver ready to stop the vehicles with brakes, there will be safety personnel to ensure everything goes smoothly.

Catering from Chic-Fil-A and Firehouse Subs is expected to begin at 11:30 a.m.

The CFVFD is always recruiting, and while Station #13 is the newest structure, the department is always looking for new members to help keep the Cypress area safer from fire. Firefighting personnel will be available to answer any recruiting questions and to assist applicants with the volunteering process.
