Fulton Fire Department Wants New Station
"It's pretty crowded up here for 17 people," he added.
Now, the fire department wants a new station on the south side of town, at Wren's former car dealership on U.S. Business 54.
"This will, hopefully, get 90 percent of our calls down to a five-minute response time, Chief Dean Buffington explained.
"I live closer to this end of town anyway," said resident Emily White. "There's more houses this way. I guess it just makes sense."
Perfect sense, according to Nelson, because "I just think it would take some of the tension off, knowing you could do your job quicker."
The new fire station could be ready in a year.
