The crews working on Fire Station 2 in Palm Beach Gardens have made some serious progress, but it’s not quite ready for action yet.

The city is tentatively looking at having a certificate of occupancy for the new 9,000-square-foot station on Campus Drive across from Palm Beach State College in late January or early February, according to spokeswoman Candice Temple. A public grand opening for the $2.5 million station will follow.

Palm Beach Gardens Fire Rescue continues to use the current Station 2 next door while the new one is completed. One big difference: the new, one-story station will be able to withstand a Category 5 hurricane.

Fire-rescue personnel from the station responded to 2,588 events in 2014, the most of Palm Beach Gardens’ five stations, according to city data provided in September.
