Station 1 - Connell McCowan Building
| Station 1 was our original Fire Station. Construction began on it in 1962 and the first truck was housed in it in early 1963. It originally was a one story, three bay, dirt floor building. In 1980 construction began on the second floor. By the mid 80's three more bays were added to the first floor. On the second floor an apartment was added along with administrative offices use to conduct fire department business.|
| In 1998 the building was dedicated to one of the founding members. Along with the dedication, the building received it's official name, The Connell McCowan Building.|
Currently Station 1 houses five apparatus, administrative offices, training/meeting room and an apartment where an active firefighter resides.
| As the population and commercial business' in our territory grew the need for a sub-station in Southern Laurel County also grew. We searched for over a year for the perfect piece of property. In December of 2003 we purchased a building just north of KFC and opened our Station 2. The building was perfect in size and location.|
| It extended our coverage area, for ISO purposes, to everyone in our Laurel County area. It also helped in our response times to areas around I-75.|
Station 2 houses two apparatus. Our new Enigine 7 & Truck 8. Truck 8 is used for a combination of things. It's a Command Vehicle, Hazardous Materials Response Truck, HIT Team (Highway Incident Traffic Team) Truck & Incident Support Truck.
| In 2012 we remodeled part of Station 2 to add an exercise facility. Firefighters and their families have access to exercise equipment 24/7. Our goal is to be able to serve our community the best we can. By being in shape, we will be better able to achieve that goal. All of the equipment was either received through grants or donated.|
