Huntsville Fire & Rescue Station 19 Grand Opening

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 12, 2015

City of Huntsville (Huntsville, AL) - Mayor Tommy Battle, Fire Chief Howard "Mac" McFarlen, and City leaders will celebrate the grand opening of Huntsville's newest Fire Station 19 today, October 12, at 2 p.m., at 2455 Old Big Cove Road near Goldsmith-Schiffman Elementary School.

The Fire Station was constructed on time and under its $2.3 million dollar budget. The 7,001-square-foot facility provides enhanced fire and emergency service protection to the southern end of Hampton Cove and eastern side of Green Mountain. The new facility is an added service to this growing part of our community.

"Every responder in every area of our great city should have the resources they need to accomplish their duties and to do them swiftly" said Mayor Battle. "Firefighters are often the first responders to citizens in need, and every second counts. We are pleased to put more boots and resources on the ground to serve our citizens."

"The addition of Fire Station 19 is part of our continuing commitment to assure the citizens of Huntsville are kept safe during emergency situations," said Chief Mac McFarlen. "Our firefighters do more than put out fires, and our emergency medical assistance, rescue services and response to hazardous materials provide many valuable services to our citizens."

The addition of Fire Station 19 also allows its sister station, Fire Station 17 at 295 Old Highway 431,to respond faster to citizens in need. Station 19 further reduces the cost of bringing another addition fire apparatus across the mountain for assistance in the event of a major fire.
