Knox County (TN) Fire Station Aims to Cut Down on Response Times

Rural Metro Fire officials celebrated the opening of Station 27, reports Wate ABC 6.

The East Knox County location replaced their existing location in the Forks of the River Industrial Park, a more residential area. Rural Metro Fire’s Public Information Officer Jeff Bagwell said a majority of their calls were from residential spots.

The new station was built with the public, and first responders, in mind. It’s also more energy-efficient than the former station, at the industrial park, which was built in 1991.
