CORPUS CHRISTI - The City of Corpus Christi has partnered with Corpus Christi Independent School District to relocate a fire station next to Miller High School.

The $2.2 million fire station will provide fire science students working through a college credit program a close look at the lifestyle of emergency responders.

Plans for the fire station currently located on Leopard St. call for demolishing an empty athletic building on campus and building the new fire station with a separate classroom for students in the Fire Science Academy and other classes.

The new fire station replaces a 50-year-old facility that is outdated and offers little privacy for on-duty firefighters who sleep at the station during long shifts.

Once the new fire station is open in spring 2014, students can enroll in the fire services program offered by Del Mar College. They will receive college credit for courses to prepare to be firefighters and emergency medical technicians.
