One of the trucks had heavy damage and the other only had minor damage. Lowndes County Fire Coordinator Neil Austin said that the fire department is a necessity and plans to do what needs to be done to get the station fixed. “Of course, we are going through the insurance process, but right now we have the trucks located in another safe location where we can assess them better there and we will start to look through the process of rebuilding because of our fire ratings, we have to have a fire station here so that will be our next step is to start looking at the recovery phase of this,” said Austin.
