New Beach Fire Station Planned after Deputy’s Drowning Death
Officials hope the beachfront station will make it easier for rescuers to get to people who get in trouble in Gulf waters along Fort Morgan.
The need for additional safeguards was highlighted in June following the death of Baldwin County Deputy Bill Smith. He died while trying to save others in the area. Another man died just days after Smith. Officials hope to begin construction of a station in October.
