Fire Station 11 opened in west central Forsyth County on Sept. 28


The Forsyth County Fire Department hosted a hose uncoupling ceremony for the newly opened Fire Station 11 (4655 Pittman Road) on Tuesday, Oct. 6. View photos from the ceremony by clicking here. 


The new station is funded by the voter-approved Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) VI program and by Impact Fees and officially opened on Sept. 28.

 

“Fire Station 11 proudly serves the residents of west Forsyth County and provides enhanced coverage for our customers in this area,” said Forsyth County Fire Chief Barry Head. “We are very thankful of the voters’ continued passage of the Forsyth County SPLOST program and eternally grateful to the Board of Commissioners for their unwavering support of the fire department.”

 

Fire Station 11 is a 12,000 square foot, four-stall station, designed to accommodate the personnel and equipment that will operate out of the facility and to allow for future growth.

 

“It’s always an honor to be a part of an uncoupling ceremony for a new fire station and to see the great pride the Fire Department takes in each of their new facilities,” said District 3 Commissioner Todd Levent. “The station is a beacon to our growing community that their safety is a priority.”

 

In Sept. 2018, the Forsyth County Fire Department was awarded a grant from the Department of Homeland Security/FEMA to support the staff cost at Fire Station 11. The Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) grant funded the hiring of 12 new firefighters for the new station. The grant provided funding for 2019, 2020 and 2021 that was not otherwise fully funded in the Fire Department’s budget.

 

Construction of new Fire Station 11 was awarded to Cooper & Co. General Contractors, Inc. of Cumming in the amount of $4,261,607. The architect for the project is Croft and Associates.
