Two of the new garage doors on the west side of the C.M. “Smitty” Smith Central Fire Station front end had been installed by Friday morning and the two on the east side were expected to be in place by the end of that day, according to Fire Chief Donnie Morris. Work already has started on installing four new doors on the north side of the building.

BEEVILLE – Anyone who has wondered why the Beeville Volunteer Fire Department has been parking its huge fire trucks outside the central fire station should have the answer by now. Those driving along the C.M. “Smitty” Smith Central Fire Station probably noticed that two of the big garage doors on the south side of the building had been replaced and that they were about five feet closer to West Cleveland Street than before. Workmen with Teal Construction Co. of Corpus Christi have been working on moving the doors out to the outer edge of the central fire station for weeks. Fire Chief Donnie Morris said workmen already have started preparing to move the frames for the doors on the north side of the building so they can begin installing the new doors there too. The old doors have been in place since the 1980s. Morris and other BVFD members realized when the department started parking the new trucks in the building that they needed more room inside the garage space. The largest of the new trucks to be parked inside the building was the Tower 1 ladder and tower vehicle the city bought a few years ago at a cost of $1 million. Previously, Morris told the City Council that department members had figured out that by eliminating the setback in the garage doors and moving them out to the outer walls of the building they could provide the room they needed. “This will give about 10 more feet,” Morris said Friday. That space is badly needed because when all the trucks are parked inside the building, firefighters are no longer able to walk between the vehicles. Morris said the extra space will allow firefighters to get around better inside the fire station. City Manager Jack Hamlett said moving the doors was part of a $600,000 improvement package the City Council approved for the building at 400 N. Washington St. The building houses City Hall, the Beeville Police Department and BVFD facilities. The improvements include refurbished restrooms at City Hall, roof work on the building and the new doors for the fire station.
