Angelina River (TX) Fire and Rescue may be operating out of a new facility as soon as next spring, reports kjas.com.
Funding for the new facility came via the passage of a sales and use tax, which voters approved in a 2020 election, the report says.
The department is currently using for its station an old, wood-frame building—with no running water—that used to serve as a boat repair shop. Also, its location boasts a lengthy response time to calls.
The new facility will be on Recreational Road 255, which aims to put them in the center of their service area, the report says.
