By Martine Wolfe-Miller, Communications Officer

MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (March 27, 2015) – The construction of Fire Station 6 at Carolina Park, a capital improvement project designed to enhance fire protection and emergency response for residents living in Mount Pleasant, is progressing within budget and on schedule. The newly constructed Station 6 will replace the temporary station currently being leased nearby at 3745 Highway 17 N.

Battalion Chief Craig Oliverius and Captain Troy Thomas are project managers for Fire Station 6. The project broke ground last November and is expected to be completed within one year. The fire station will also include a full police substation, which will provide additional support to the officers patrolling in the area.

“Metal components for the building were delivered this month and all electrical and plumbing have been installed for preparation of interior slab pour. Following completion of the concrete slab, we will begin to erect the walls over the next 30 days,” said Fire Chief Herb Williams. “Drive-through bays, a ladder company, and an engine company are also part of the project. The station will be built not only to meet today’s public safety needs, but also the needs we anticipate having over the next 25-50 years.”

“The groundbreaking and construction of Fire Station 6 in Carolina Park will function as a state of the art facility that is fully staffed and equipped to serve and protect the citizens of Mount Pleasant,” said Mayor Linda Page.
