MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (May 1, 2015) – Mount Pleasant Fire Chief Herb Williams recently reported on the progress made at the site of the future home of Fire Station 6 at Carolina Park, a capital improvement project designed to enhance fire protection and emergency response for residents living in Mount Pleasant.
“I am pleased to report that construction of Fire Station 6 is 25% complete and progressing within budget. The new fire station will replace the temporary station currently being leased nearby at 3745 Highway 17 N,” he said. “The concrete slab floor has been poured and finished. The installation of the steel superstructure has begun and will be completed within 30 days. The roofing for the fire station will start within the next 30 days.”
The project broke ground last November and is expected to be completed within one year. The structure will be built to meet public safety needs over the next 25-50 years. Drive-through bays, a ladder company and an engine company are part of the project. The fire station will include a full police substation, which will provide additional support to the officers patrolling in the area.
