New Fire Station Opening Delayed

Fairhope, Al.

Parker Road Fire station

The expected mid-July completion date for the north fire station on Parker Road behind the Publix grocery has been pushed back, because more structural engineering work ("wind load") is needed for the mostly-metal building -- according to fire department sources.

The city council will be asked to buy a new fire truck for the station, according to the mayor's earlier statements.

The FVFD is a private, non-profit corporation under contract with the city to provide fire protection services.
