Sissonville VFD eyes the future

Crews continue to make progress on the new Sissonville fire station. The heavy work of pouring concrete began Friday, and if the weather cooperates and all goes as planned, the new volunteer fire station could open in November. It's at 383 Call Road in Sissonville, and will be called the Thomas K Johnson Fire Station. Meanwhile, members of the Sissonville volunteer fire department recently met with Kanawha County commissioners about increasing funding. The volunteer firefighters say costs have gone up which puts pressure on revenue streams. If any levies are proposed or taxes are raised, the public would have its say.
