BROKEN ARROW, Okla. - Broken Arrow first responders are moving to a new Public Safety Complex.

On Friday Broken Arrow police and fire will leave their old 6,000 square-foot building and move to the new safety headquarters near North 6th Street and Kenosha Street.

While crews finished painting on Thursday, Cpl. Leon Calhoun showed FOX23 around the new facility.

"This is about three times as much space than what we once had," said Calhoun.

FOX23 got a look at the 17,000 square-foot space several months ago when they were putting in the wiring and now it's almost finished.

The building will have rooms to house records, detectives and the Broken Arrow Fire Department.

There's also room for an emergency operation center.

"They were using what was a long closet space in our old station," Calhoun said.

It's a big undertaking to move since the 911 call center has to be operational at all times, but they have a plan.

"From my understanding they will have a backup center so they can operate off of backups," said Calhoun.

The communication center will be moved by mid-March but Calhoun said everyone is more than ready for the move.

They'll begin operating out of the new building on Monday.
