May 22, 2024 – The city of Hendersonville, Tenn., announced today the grand opening of its Fire Station No. 7, a new 9,030-square-foot facility to house emergency services, administrative personnel and equipment for the city. The city held a ribbon-cutting and grand opening ceremony at the end of April with city residents and project partners to commemorate this new beacon of hope and safety in the community.

Fire Station No. 7 will greatly improve response time on the north side of the city and provide additional support for residents in Hendersonville as the city grows. The new three-bay fire hall will serve more than 1,000 homes on 450+ acres and is expected to cut response times in half for residents. The station includes a day room, men’s and women’s bunk rooms separated by a shared wellness room, Captain’s quarters, apparatus bays and additional support spaces. There is also a separate office for the City’s Police that doubles as a storm shelter to be used as needed in an emergency. Off the dayroom, first responders can enjoy any downtime on a fully covered outdoor patio.

“With the addition of Fire Station No. 7, we will be able to better serve and secure our rapidly growing city,” said Scotty Bush, CFO, EFO, EMT-P, fire chief in Hendersonville. “This new hall will cut response times for emergencies across the city in half and further our commitment to keeping our community safe through ample facilities for first responders. We look forward to this new station helping to better protect our community for many years.”

Wold Architects and Engineers, a local leader in government architecture and the project’s architect, provided professional design services for the new fire station, including civil and structural engineering and architectural and interior design from conceptual design through construction documents with both drawings and specifications.

“We’re proud to provide a second home to the first responders of Hendersonville and are grateful for the opportunity to work with the city and community on this important project,” said Jim Gilliam, principal at Wold Architects and Engineers. “Our team aims to make a difference in the communities in which we live and work, and we look forward to the positive impact Fire Station No. 7 will have on the city’s current and future residents.”

Hendersonville Fire Station No. 7 is located at 1342 Drakes Creek Road, Hendersonville, TN 37075.
