SMITHS STATION, AL (WTVM) -

The Smiths Station Fire & Rescue Department of Smiths Station, AL is proud to announce the completion of their sixth fire station.

Located at 50 Lee Road 315 near the intersection of Lee Road 315 and Lee Road 248 (Summerville Road), Station Six will house a front line fire engine and a brush truck.

The addition of Station Six to the other five strategically located stations within their coverage area will enhance the departments’ response capability.

The location of the new station places more homes and businesses within the five-road mile radius of a fire station that many insurance providers require and may positively impact some homeowners’ insurance premiums.

Their approximately 72 square mile coverage area includes 32,000 residents in the city of Smiths Station and the surrounding unincorporated areas of Lee County, AL.

They are a 100 percent volunteer department with about 40 member/firefighters, most of whom are certified as Paramedics, Emergency Medical Technicians, or Emergency Medical Responders.
