    Thats awesome progress. This week the contractors started pouring concrete at the site of my new station with the career department, and we are still looking over plans for two new stations with my volunteer department.

    I feel you excitement.

    Speedy's is a local pizza joint. Their Pizza is great! Their pasta, subs and salads aren't bad. Drop me a line when you get down here and I buy you lunch. Well, I buy you lunch if it is close to pay day.

    Nice station.

    How many bays are dedicated to EMS and how many to fire?

    What size crews do you have running FT out of each side?

    Do they share common areas such a kitchen, lounge/day room and bathrooms/showers?

    Thank you. The Building is the Jackson County Rescue Squad's main Station and is our Substation. We will run two trucks (1 tanker & 1 engine) out of it. When our new addition is complete the Squad will run two of their trucks out of our station. At this time, there are no Ambulances station at either building. We will have room at our main station, when completed, to house an ambulance and living quarters for one crew, if and when the NCSHP moves out. As it stands now, Both the Fire Dept. and the Squad has equal use of the building's facilities. As to the question on staffing, there are no paid ff at this substation and our main station only has one paid member. (Its all the county will pay for at this time.) Like our new addition, this building is set up to house up to 8 staff when the time comes

    No the Charger is not mine, it belongs to one of the STEP (Sheriff's Traffic Enforcement Program) units. Since I got promoted to a shift supervisor (Sgt.) spot, I had to give up my car and now drive a SUV. The pays a lot more but there are times when I miss my Crown Vic.

    Everyone needs at least one "ripe" truck. Old Red is a 1940 American La France model Ford. We are very proud to still have her and on a good day the old girl can still pump water.

    I'm so jealous. Must be nice to have a piece of working mechanical history in your firehouse.

    Very nice.
