Lincoln Fire & Rescue and Lincoln police celebrated the official opening of the city's newest combined police and fire station, Station 15 at 6601 Pine Lake Road, at a ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday.
The police department's southeast team has been working out of the station near 70th Street and Pine Lake Road for more than a month. But the fire department has just begun to staff it with rigs and crews.
It was the second of four new stations paid for with $24 million collected by a sales tax, which also paid for a new emergency radio system.
