Bethel Fire Station Construction In Home Stretch

Posted: Updated:

The $2 million dollar fire station going up on Oakridge Road in Clover is in the home stretch.

Bethel Volunteer Fire Department has been building a new station, next door to its current station, for close to two years. The firefighters and trucks have outgrown the original station, which was built in 1967.

“We’ve pretty much out grown the building space,” said Bethel Firefighter, Don Love. “ You can’t walk around the trucks without opening the front door to get around because the trucks are so much bigger.”

When completed, the new station will have 15,000 square feet of space, 5 drive-thru bays and sleeping quarters.

The original completion date was set for late May, but wet ground has delayed the move-in date.

“We had a wet spring and in order for them to be able to put down the concrete, the soil has to compact so much to hold up the big trucks,” said Love.

They are scheduled to move-in sometime this summer.
