Fire department outgrows its building

March 11, 2014

An Oconee County volunteer fire department has announced plans to expand and renovate its 31-year old station building. Corinth-Shiloh Fire Department paid an architect to draw plans and has received an estimate that it’ll cost $325 thousand to add sleeping quarters, a training room, and study rooms for university students who serve as fire fighters. According to Chief Mike Zambito and Department President Brandon Price, they are undertaking a four-year effort to raise the money, with a first-year goal of raising $80 thousand through a letter drive and a golf tournament. In a communication to residents and business owners in the fire district, Zambito and Price say, “This station was built in 1983, and very little if any changes have been made. Consequently, we as a community have outgrown our fire station.”
