Officials celebrated the opening of West Florence Fire Rescue’s new Station No. 1, reports SC Now.
The new fire station has an improved kitchen and dining area, a place to unwind and a fitness center. The fitness equipment has not yet arrived. The fire station also has beds for 10 firefighters and two laundry rooms, one for regular laundry and one to decontaminate turnout gear.
The fire station also features four double-depth drive-thru engine bays so fire engines and ladder trucks won’t have to back into the fire station. The previous station will be used for storage of equipment.
