By  | 

ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WTVY) - Enterprise celebrated the addition of a new central fire station on Wednesday.

The 17,000 square foot building will house offices, a training room and sleeping quarters. It's located in an old car dealership on Plaza Drive. It becomes the second new fire station to open in Enterprise in just one week.

"By having them in all directions, north, south, east and west, we're able to respond to any emergency sooner with an average time because we are spread out,” said Chief Byron Herring.

Herring points out the importance of strategically placed fire stations with the city growing at a rapid pace.
