Building Changes Announced

October 4, 2014  – After years of study and more recently, an exhaustive examination of facility needs moving forward, it was determined that a new building in a new location is required to better balance response times to emergency medical calls. The Preston Volunteer Emergency Services Board of Directors voted to approve the building of a new EMS facility, as well as make major improvements to Station 1.

The new facility will be located along Hwy 289, at least 2 miles further south from the current Station 1.  Several sites are under review, from Maintenance Road near SimmonsShores down to Hwy 406.  A final decision on the location will be made in the next few months.  Major improvements to the existing Station 1 will also be funded, including new siding, new floor coverings, interior repair and painting, added insulation and remodeling the kitchen.
