Perry Fire Dept. Celebrates New Station | News
Members of the Perry Fire Department celebrated their newest fire station with a dedication ceremony and ribbon cutting, Saturday.
Fire Chief Joel Gray says the fire station, located off of Houston Lake Road, has been in use since May.
Gray says the station covers a 5 mile radius.
The area includes 8 subdivisions and several commercial properties.
"This location turned out to be perfectly placed in the center of the 5 miles that we needed to cover. So, it was one of those things that was meant to be," said Gray.
Gray says the response time for fire and medical emergencies is reduced to 4 minutes or less with the new location.
