Officials say that the new fire house will be able to cut down the response time of emergency crews.

Because of road construction, it would take the closest firefighters 15 minutes to arrive on a scene in Woodstation.

Chairman of the Catoosa County Board of Commissioners, Steven Henry says, “Now, we will have full time fire protection and our response time is five minutes, 3 to 5 minutes versus 15. You know, I think that all of the residents of Catoosa County deserve full time fire and protection. So, I’m thankful that we were able to do this. We got a great group of guys down here. There’s three full time firefighters 24/7.”

County officials say that they saved half a million dollars with the purchase of the home.
