Hall County Fire services welcomed another nine fire trucks after nine vehicles arrived in February, reports Gainesville Times.
The fleet maintenance vendor is in the process of evaluating eight older vehicles that are being replaced.
Work has not yet begun on a new fire station. In March 2020, the Hall County Board of Commissioners approved the use of eminent domain to acquire property, but COVID-19 has slowed down capital projects. But another fire station’s construction is underway.
The current fire station was built almost 40 years ago and presents difficulties for firefighters trying to exit the station amid heavy traffic.
