Clyattville gets new fire station

By Robin Jedlicka - bio | email

CLYATTVILLE, GA (WALB) - A new fire station opened its doors in Lowndes County today.

The new station was built to serve the people of Clyattville.  The 5,000 square foot facility was paid for with sales tax revenue from S.P.L.O.S.T. IV. 

The Clyattville station previously operated out of a small building constructed back in 1960. Clyattville covers a large portion of Lowndes county, which is why county commissioners selected the location to receive the upgrade.

"This has always been a very professional service that we've had here in Clyattville as far as our fire department is concerned, and now we have a facility that's indicative of their skills," says Clyattville citizen Chad May.  "This is a tremendous asset to this Clyattville community."

The new station's capabilities will improve firefighters' response time.  They hope it will eventually transition into a 24 hour station.
