Emmett (KS) fire station’s fate in eastern Pottawatomie County may be known before the end of the year, as Pottawatomie County Fire officials say they’ve reached out to a company for a feasibility study on whether it makes sense to renovate the facility or build a new one, reports 1350kman.com.

Staffing became a concern as recently as six months ago—dropping to as few as two firefighters, the report says. Officials say some applications are pending, though the roster currently has seven firefighters.

Officials say the next step won’t take place until the study’s results are in, which they estimate will be in November.
