According to a report from WCTI, in rural Greene County, North Carolina, the Maury Volunteer Fire & Rescue Department (MVFR) plans on building a substation along Highway 258. For area residents, this could mean quicker response times and a higher Insurance Services Office (ISO) rating, potentially saving lives and money.
MVFR Chief Neil Jarman says the substation will provide big savings to Maury residents in several ways, such as a dramatic drop in insurance costs.
The MVFR’s current station’s response time to Maury is about 10 minutes. Once the new station is operational, that time could be cut in half.
Jarman says the MVFR hopes construction on the new substation is completed by the end of 2021. He encourages anyone interested to consider becoming a MVFR volunteer member.
