Greenville city firefighters moved into a new fire station earlier this month, reports Greenville Journal.
Construction on the $4.9 million facility began in August 2019. An additional 1.4 million was needed to acquire the property, demolition, asbestos abatement of existing structures, stormwater retention, traffic control devices and parking lot and streetscape improvements.
The new station will replace a fire station that was built in 1950. The two-story fire station is ADA accessible and includes an elevator, more privacy in sleeping and working quarters and improved facilities for cleaning and decontaminating equipment and gear.
Four firefighters per shift are currently assigned to the station. A ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled for Jan. 13, 2021.
