Fulton Fire Chief Dean Buffington said that although there is not a set date for the opening of the Fulton Fire Department’s new station on Tennyson Road, it should be in operation by the end of the month.

The Fulton Fire Department will soon be operating out of two stations.

Although work on the new $1.533 million station on Tennyson Road is not quite finished, Fulton Fire Chief Dean Buffington said it should only be a matter of weeks before it is opened.

“We’re still not committed to a specific date — a lot of it depends on the contractor’s punch list — but it is coming along nicely and following a schedule,” Buffington said. “I’d be surprised if we didn’t have it up and running by the end of the month.”
