One of Fort Bend County’s Emergency Medical Services (EMS) branches is temporarily relocating while its fire service facility is being rebuilt.

Effective Friday, the county said Rosenberg Medic 602 will temporarily be relocated from its building at 406 Houston St. to the Fort Bend EMS administration building at 4332 State Highway 6 while the current facility is demolished and a new one is built in its place.

A news release said the county and city of Rosenberg entered into a land-use agreement last year to replace the current two-story metal building – which is more than 50 years old – with a single-story, 4,600 square-foot station that has two drive-through ambulance bays. The move will last for about a year, according to the release.

The county says the new building will continue to house two county paramedics 24 hours a day while expanding living spaces, storage capabilities, and the apparatus bay area. It will also have an emergency generator and the ability to house additional EMS crews, according to the county, as well as reserve ambulances for peak call volumes or storm events.

“The new building will enhance and improve service delivery to the citizens of Rosenberg for the next 30 years,” Fort Bend EMS Chief Graig Temple said.
