The New Bluffton Fire Station #30 has broken ground at the corner of Burnt Church and Ulmer Road and will take about 9 months to be complete. Fraser Construction will be building the project with the help of subcontractors such as JS sitework construction who is currently doing the clearing.
Chris Kardish with the Bluffton Today reported on the event on Sept. 23. The building will replace the existing station which looks like an old tin shed compared to the plans for the new station. The fire department and chief are very excited about the new facility. A ground breaking ceremony will be set some time in October.
