Stringer VFD steadily moving into new home

Stringer VFD has moved all of its trucks into the new fire house, but more moving is on the horizon.

Stringer Volunteer Fire Department has a new home, just adjacent to the old fire department building, it slowly but steadily has been moving into over the past days.

The newly constructed, four-bay fire house includes modern facilities for department member use, as well as up-to-date fire-fighting and emergency amenities that are expected to ultimately serve numerous residents of the area.

Stringer VFD Chief Mike Gambrell said Tuesday the overall recent move into the new fire house has been slow, but steady. All of the department’s trucks have been moved into the new facility, but the department is facing a few heavy work days to complete the conversion.

“The move in is going slow, but we are proud to finally be in the new facility,” Gambrell said. “The (Jasper County) Supervisors worked hard with us on getting this new facility, and we are very thankful.”

The department, according to Jasper County Beat 4 Supervisor Randy Corley, will hold an open house for the public on November 6, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
