FLORENCE COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Soon some people living in the West Florence area will have fire crews a little closer.

The new Hoffmeyer Road station is slated to be up and running within a little less than a month.

Right now construction crews are adding the finishing touches.

“The purpose is to put resources in this area. We have seen this area growth in residents and businesses.  We need to provide fire coverage,” Captain Anthony Fox with the  West Florence Fire Department said.

The Ebenezer Road station is going to make for three serving the West Florence fire District.

The station is located smack dab between the main station in Pine Needles Road and also the substation on North Cashua.

The new station opens will be staffed 24 hours and three new paid firemen have been added to the west Florence crew to help with staffing.

Officials said this new station will help provide faster response times to the folks who live along Hoffmeyer Road and Ebenezer Road.

 “Ebenezer, Hoffmeyer Road area, which is the area that currently does not have a fire station. We will be able to respond to fire calls and medical calls and rescue with our employees our staff and our volunteers,“ Captain Fox said.
