Ok, it’s official. Despite sending out possibly THE most convoluted, confusing press release ever written (so I won’t bother you with duping it over here, even if I could as it came in as a .docx file) the Atlanta Fire and Rescue Dept. confirmed the closure of Fire Station #23 on Howell Mill Road by order of Mayor Franklin. A CL blog post about it all is here.
A petition to protest this closure is here. Sign it if you care to. I wonder what fire and rescue unit(s) respond to Atlantic Station now? Sure would be hate to get caught in one of those high-rises and have to rely on Atlanta Fire and Rescue to come get me out of there. Lord knows where the help would be coming from.
