said. “ We just need to make sure that the numbers make sense and they’re fair.”
In the mean time NCFS has already assumed responsibility over the city of Oxford.
“ We were already [ providing fire services] in cooperation with the volunteer department,” Satterfield said. “As of Thursday, we took sole responsibility.”
Satterfield said he at some point hopes to locate a new fires station in the Oxford area. Currently the two closest fire stations are a station on Mount Zion Road about 3.2 miles from the city and a station on Ga. Highway 81, approximately 2.5 miles from the city.
Newton County Fire Services will not have to add any new staff in order to serve Oxford said Satterfield.
