VON ORMY—The new Jarret Vol. Fire Department fire station is nearing completion and scheduled to open in September.
The station is being built at 14723 Quarterhorse Rd. in Von Ormy. The new station will relocate Jarret VFD into the City of Von Ormy.
Work crews poured the driveway concrete the last week of August and are now focusing on the interior finish out. The station is schedule to begin operations by October 1.
Jarret members were seen landscaping and cutting limbs around the statoin over Labor Day weekend, cleaning the site for their move in.
Operating out of the new fire station will cut response times into the city by over 4 minutes per call and should lower home owners insurance premiums.
In an addition bonus for residents, the station radio tower will host a receiver by Rock Solid Internet, providing stronger home internet service.
