Fulton County Fire Rescue Department will relocate Fire Station 15 from its current location at 8320 Gullatt Rd., Palmetto, Ga 30268 to a new site at 6625 Cedar Grove Rd. at Cedar Grove Park.
The current Fire Station 15 will close on February 28, 2013. Crew members assigned to Fire Station 15 will temporarily relocate to Fire Station 17 during the transition period but will continue to respond to calls in the Fire Station 15 service area.
A modular building will be constructed at Fire Station 15's new site with plans for a more permanent structure in the future. Fire Station 15 is expected to be up and running at its new site by mid-summer 2013.
"The relocation of Fire Station 15 will benefit citizens because it will place the station in the heart of its coverage district," said Fulton County Fire Chief Larry Few. "It will also provide a cost savings to the County because we will no longer be leasing the building where Station 15 is currently housed."
In addition to a new location, the new Fire Station 15 will also serve an expanded territory. Some of the territory currently served by Fire Station 17 will become part of Fire Station15's territory once the new modular station is built.
