According to a report from the Shelby County Reporter, the town of Pelham, Alabama, broke ground on its new Pelham Fire Department’s (PFD’s) Fire Station No. 3 on January 26, a move which should provide much-needed fire and emergency medical services (EMS) to the rapidly-expanding west side of the city.
The station will be located at 5952 Shelby County 11. It is scheduled for completion by January 2022 and will replace the current Fire Station No. 3, located at 1297 Shelby County 52, which was built in 1990.
PFD Chief Mike Reid said the new station will be state-of-the-art and allow members to better protect residents along the corridor as well as improve the department’s ability to provide fire, EMS, and hazmat services
Pelham City Manager Gretchen DiFante said the new facility will allow the PFD to improve and expand its service along the Highway-11 corridor.
