HoCo To Build Two Fire Stations...

...and hire more 911 operators after finding out that response times are not what they should be, according to this Sun story.

New fire stations will be located in Glenwood and Mayfield. The latter facility will be located temporarily at the Mayfield Highway Maintenance Shop until the county finalizes a deal to purchase land at Route 175 and U.S. 1.

The new stations will be scaled-down versions of typical fire stations, officials said. The facilities will cost between $3 million and $4 million each, compared with between $10 million and $15 million for stations that usually include a community center and are outfitted with more equipment and more firefighters.
