New firehouse in Pooler nearing completion

POOLER, GA (WTOC) - The Pooler Fire Department is just weeks away from getting a new firehouse.

The new building on South Rogers Street will replace Fire House 1, which was where the new city municipal complex is being built on Highway 80.

Pooler Fire officials say the new house will have updated technology, three truck bays and be better located for the big trucks to pull out onto the road for emergency calls.

"It'll be better located. Because it's kind of aggravating getting out of traffic in that area right there. Because you know as good as I do how busy Highway 80 is now," said Capt. Lee Williams, Pooler Fire Department.

The new fire house is expected to be finished at the beginning of September.
