Construction crews have broken ground on the new Simpsonville Fire Department station just outside city limits.
Located at Jonesville and McKinney roads in the fire department’s service area, Station 6 is set to be completed around winter or spring of 2021.
Chief Wesley Williams said adding the new station will improve safety for residents by reducing response times.
“Every second counts when responding to reports of fire and other emergencies,” Williams said. “The addition of Station 6 means more lives will be saved and property damage prevented.”
The location of Station 6 is vacant land owned by the City.
Station 6 will look similar to Station 5 on East Standing Springs Road.
