Feasibility Study for Swancreek Township (OH) Fire Substation

A feasibility study conducted for Swancreek Township trustees concluded that an estimated $1.2 million fire substation in the township would improve services for residents, reports Fulton County Expositor.

A computer model was created for the study to determine the best location for a township substation, gauging the results by using six, eight, and ten minute travel times for emergency vehicles.

The study also placed the cost of staffing and operating a fire substation at $504,600 annually. That includes annual operating costs of $42,600 and an annual cost of $462,000 for a full-time three-person staff, including Medicare and payroll taxes.
