Cutting the ribbon on the new station

Tuesday afternoon, Marlboro County government officials and representatives of the fire service cut the ribbon on the county’s newest fire station. The Newtonville Station is located at 1565 Family Farm Road and will serve residents in the Brightsville, Adamsville and Newtonville sections. County councilman Willie Gladden, who represents the area, and council chair Dr. Carolyn Prince spoke briefly to those assembled for the ribbon cutting. They explained the importance of the new station in reducing response times for fire fighters and lowering the insurance premiums of the residents in the area. Gladden said that 140 homes will see substantially lower insurance rates. The Newtonville Station is the third new facility that the county has opened in the last year. Above, Brightsville Fire Chief Bill Parrish and assistant chief Alex McGovern slice the ribbon on the station.
