On Friday afternoon, Henderson County wrapped up a dedication ceremony for a new emergency services center named after Commissioner Thomas Thompson. It's located where the old Balfour School used to be. The state-of-the-art facility will store equipment, have meeting rooms and training rooms for a number of first responders. Emergency Management, the fire marshal’s office, the EMS main station and the rescue squad will all be housed in the 57,000-square-foot facility. It’s named after Commissioner Thomas Thompson, who spearheaded the $13.6 million project. They’re still moving things in and expect it to be fully operational in about a month.
