Holly Springs Fire Substation opens

Oconee County announces the grand opening of its new Holly Springs Fire Substation. The station will serve residents and business located along Highway 76 between Westminster and Long Creek. Holly Springs Fire Substation #24 is the first of eight stations to be built as part of Oconee County’s comprehensive Fire Service Improvement Plan. The plan calls for new stations to be placed in communities that are beyond five miles of currently operating station. The new facility will provide faster response time and aid in lower insurance premiums. Designed and constructed by J.Davis Construction of Westminster, the station was designed to be functional and low-cost to maintain and expandable for future needs. The station will be operated by the 25-plus members of the Long Creek Fire Department. The new facility will house a single engine, water tanker, and brush truck.
