The Jackson Board of Alderman Contemplating Up Grades to City Fire Rescue

A possible renovation of the Jackson Fire Rescue Department was one subject that was discussed during Monday night’s Jackson Board of Alderman Meeting. Officials say that the space they occupy now was built in 1981 and the fire department has changed greatly over forty years. The Jackson Fire Rescue Headquarters are located on the intersection of Jackson Boulevard and South Hope Street and it was also home to the Jackson Police Department until May of last May until it moved into new headquarters next door. Officials say some of the upgrades the facility could use are upgrades to its HVAC and plumbing systems, staff sleeping quarters and more storage among others. Officials say the next step will likely be to seek proposals for a formal study of the facility to determine how it can expand or upgrade to meet the fire department’s current and future needs.
