Forsyth County News
A fire station in southwestern Forsyth County will be closed for about a month while workers replace the parking lot and driveway.

As Fire Station 14 (click for map) on McFarland Road shuts down this week for repairs, personnel and equipment will be moved to Fire Station 2 on Carolene Way, also in southwest Forsyth.

Repairs are the first phase of a two-part project by Reid & Reid Contractors. The cost to the county is $107,201, which could come out of the county’s general fund or fire fund, or a combination of the two.

Fire Chief Danny Bowman said the repair work is much needed.

“This current condition of the driveway and parking area could create a potential hazard to our emergency personnel’s ability to safely respond to emergencies and could also pose a danger to the fire equipment,” Bowman said.

Fire Station 15, which is off Buford Highway (click for map) near the Gwinnett County line, will undergo similar renovations later.

The county commission approved the repairs for both stations on Sept. 8.

Regardless of the repair work, Bowman said residents should still call 911 in case of an emergency.
