Officials to Celebrate Opening of Clark County Fire Station 35 in Summerlin

Clark County Commissioner Justin Jones and officials from the Clark County Fire Department, Real Property Management Department and The Howard Hughes Corporation are celebrating the grand opening of Fire Station 35 at 10350 W. Flamingo Road in Summerlin with a hose-cutting ceremony at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 14.

The 10,482-square-foot station will serve the growing southwest Las Vegas Valley. The Howard Hughes Corporation funded the design, development and construction of the new fire station and donated the land on which it sits as part of its development agreement with Clark County. This represents an investment in public safety infrastructure by The Howard Hughes Corporation of more than $10 million. Fire Station 35 is located near the northwest corner of Flamingo Road and Hualapai Way. The station’s service area generally ranges north to Desert Inn and south to Hacienda covering calls east and west of Hualapai Way.

“Fire Station 35 is an incredibly valuable contribution to Clark County and the residents and businesses it will serve in the southwest part of our valley,” said Commissioner Jones, whose Commission District F includes the new station. “We are grateful to The Howard Hughes Corporation for working with our Fire Department and Real Property Management Department to design and build a station that will meet our service demands today and well into the future. It’s a great example of the work that can be accomplished when the public and private sector team up for the good of our community.”

“As community builders, we know that public safety is foundational to quality of life,” said Kevin T. Orrock, President, Las Vegas Region, The Howard Hughes Corporation. “We also understand the value of public-private partnerships that help to ensure our communities and residents have access to public safety protections. We are pleased to partner with Clark County on this project and welcome Fire Station 35 to Summerlin.”

The Clark County Fire Department is the largest in the state and is responsible for protecting the famed Las Vegas Strip, the largest part of the Las Vegas Valley and a county the size of New Jersey at more than 8,000 square miles. Its purview also covers the resort townships of Laughlin, Primm and Jean. The department has 32 full-time fire stations and 10 volunteer fire stations in rural areas. The department received almost 155,000 calls for service in 2021. The Fire Department also maintains one of only 28 urban search and rescue teams in the country and provides fire and rescue services to the nation’s 8th-busiest airport.
