County Officials will officially open and dedicate the new Butts County Fire Department Station 3, also known as the Worthville Fire Station, on Tuesday, May 22. The new station will replace the old one that was razed last year and is being funded primarily by a grant from the Federal Government. The ceremony is scheduled to begin at 10:00 AM and once concluded, the station will be open for tours by Fire Department personnel. The Fire Department will begin the process of moving into the new station and equipping it later this month.
The new station features a large bay area, sleeping quarters, a day room and kitchen, utility room and a small meeting room that can host training sessions or meetings. A large upstairs area is available for storage or other uses.
The new station is located on Keys Ferry Road at the intersection with Walthall Road. Its strategic location ensures accessibility to multiple areas such as Fincherville and Jackson Lake as well as Henry and Newton County. The public is cordially invited to attend the ceremonies and to tour the new fire station afterwards.
