Sugar Hill (NC) to Open Second Fire Station

Sugar Hill-Montford Cove Fire Department will open a second fire station, reports The McDowell News.

Sugar Hill Fire Chief Joe Washburn said that, in 2018, 65% of the call volume would have come out of Station 2 if it had been built.

Sugar Hill-Montford Cove has 31 volunteers on call and eight part-time paid personnel. One of those eight will split their duties between the two departments from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays.
