Sherrills Ford Terrell (NC) Fire & Rescue (SFTFR) recently broke ground on new digs to replace its 50-year-old station, reports mooresvilletribune.com. The new station is slated to be completed and in operation by early 2022.
Station 4, located at 2080 Mollys Backbone Rd., was imagined 13 years ago but other obligations held it up. It will cost $2.7 million and will house a crew of two firefighters along with an engine, a tanker, and QRV for medical first response.
The station encompasses 14,000 square feet and includes living quarters, a training room, office space, and five apparatus drive-thru bays. The department will also be able to house some of its other response trailers and logistical equipment that is now being stored at one of SFTFR’s other three fire stations.
SFTFR will continue to use the old fire station beside the school for training and logistical operations.
