The Brentwood Fire and Rescue Department broke ground on a new, $9 million fire station, reports Williamson Herald.
The Brentwood Mayor and city officials joined firefighters to mark the symbolic celebration. The new, two-bay building will be two stories and 10,000 square feet. The fire station will include one front-line fire engine and one reserve apparatus.
Brentwood-based TMPartners is the architectural design firm that created the building programming, design and facility analysis.
City officials said the fire station would dramatically improve response times to the southeast quadrant of the city and adjacent areas. Staffing for the new station would be accommodated gradually through annual increases in personnel.
