Daphne Fire Department’s Station 5 is now officially up and running.
Several officials across the Jubilee City were there as they cut the ribbon Tuesday morning.
Daphne Fire Chief Leann Tacon says the new station—right off Highway 181 at Milton Jones Road—has been a work in progress for years.
“It took a little while, a little planning, there’s definitely a need in this area out here, this area is growing, especially residential areas, so we discovered its kind of an area of town that needed to be covered, and the plans were started a few years ago, and here we are,” said Daphne Fire Chief Tacon.
The station is covering one of the biggest booming areas in Baldwin County, as hundreds of houses and several subdivisions continue to pop up.
