The city’s fourth fire station is about a year away, reports Montgomery Advertiser.
The new station will house an engine company and reserve ambulance. There will also be space dedicated at the station to an annex for the police department. Once construction is complete, the firehouses will be about 1.8 miles apart. The fire department has 85 employees, with 13 people in administration and the remaining 72 on shift. The department provides fire protection and ambulance service to 36 square miles.
