FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) - Construction for the new West Florence Fire Department is progressing. West Florence Fire-Rescue held their groundbreaking of Station 4 on February 26th, 2016. 

According to Captain Anthony B Fox, this station will serve the greater Hoffmeyer Road area and will be staffed by both full time firefighters and volunteer firefighters. Fox said once Station #4 is placed in service, the entire West Florence Fire District will have a fire station within five miles of any residence or business, as a result response times will be faster.

Currently the WFFD serves a resident population of 25,000 in a 35 square mile area.

The department posted a video on their Facebook page Sunday afternoon of the site progression.
