KENT MOORE CABINETS ARE FEATURED IN SURPRISE DALLAS FIRE STATION MAKEOVER
Just in time for Thanksgiving Day, The Dallas Cowboys starting offensive line, Ford, Fox Sports, and actor Denis Leary, teamed up to give Dallas Fire Station 43 a much-needed renovation.
Landmark Home Improvement LLC was chosen to head up the renovation, and Kent Moore Cabinets was selected as the custom cabinet-maker of choice. The surprise rehab was broadcast during the Fox Sports NFL Pregame Show between the Cowboys and Redskins.
Fire Station 43, built in the 50’s and located south of the new Kent Moore Cabinets Design Center under construction in Frisco, was the most run down station in the city. The fire station has three shifts of 10 firefighters living onsite at all times, so the station is like a second home to the firefighters.
Carefully designed kitchen cabinets and storage cabinets with a special firehouse red paint for some and molten black paint for others, were custom built and finished at the Kent Moore Cabinets manufacturing plant in Bryan, then shipped to the fire station for installation.
The renovation crews demolished and rebuilt three rooms in just under 72 hours. Kent Moore Cabinets employees Eric Paulin and Marty Flugge and other volunteers worked alongside Dallas Cowboys Doug Free, Ronald Leary, Travis Frederick, Tyron Smith and Zack Martin, all of who assisted with the firehouse remodel. Kent Moore Cabinets employee Eric Paulin, a former firefighter himself, said “It did tear at my heart strings a little every time the tones dropped (the fire alarm). You can take the boy out of the firehouse but you can’t take the firehouse out of the boy.”
On the day of the big reveal, there was a huge production crew there and some of the Dallas Cowboys. On behalf of Ford, Dennis Leary presented the station with a 2017 Ford Super Duty truck, then presented a $50,000 check for equipment upgrades from the Leary Foundation. AND…everyone LOVED the Kent Moore Cabinets!
In between fire calls, the firefighters had a great Thanksgiving meal in their newly renovated kitchen and dining quarters, then watched the Dallas Cowboys defeat the Washington Redskins on Thanksgiving Day.
“Kent Moore Cabinets is proud to be a part of this extraordinary project and we are indebted to these brave men and women of Fire Station 43 for their heroic efforts and risk to their own lives, every time the fire bell rings”, says Casey Moore, President of Kent Moore Cabinets.
