The new Sherrills Ford-Terrell Fire and Rescue station is under construction and will replace a building that is 50 years old, reports Statesville Record & Landmark.
The base will be 14,000 square feet and cost $2.7 million. Construction broke ground on April 21 and the station is expected to open in early 2022.
The new station will start with the same number, but as new housing is built and more people move to the area, more responders may be added to the base. It will also house a fire engine, a tanker and a quick response vehicle for medical calls.
