Natural mold removal

Milton Fire Station 41 reopens after mold removal

MILTON, GA — Milton firefighters returned to an upgraded Fire Station 41 on Monday, after spending months being housed by colleagues in Roswell while necessary mold remediation work was completed.

Station 41, at the intersection of New Providence Road and Arnold Mill Road/State Route 140, closed last November after an air quality assessment found high levels of black mold spores in its dormitories and high levels in its common areas.

Very soon after this issue was revealed, the City of Roswell welcomed firefighters, equipment, and resources from Milton to co-locate with their own crews at Roswell Fire Station 6. This firehouse at 825 Cox Road is just 1.5 miles from Milton’s Station 41, minimizing incident response times within the coverage area.

“We would like to thank the City of Roswell and its Fire Department for being so welcoming and accommodating over the past few months,” Mayor Peyton Jamison said. “Firefighters are always watching out for others, and we are extremely grateful that our friends in Roswell have so generously helped our firefighters and, in doing so, the community of Milton.”

Milton and Roswell already have an “automatic aid agreement,” which means firefighters from each department respond to fires in the other cities. The temporary sharing of a fire station strengthened that relationship, as did a Council vote earlier this year to allow equipment from Station 6 in Roswell to refuel at Fire Station 41 in Milton. This saves Roswell crews from having to add gas to their vehicles 6.5 miles away at a refueling point. station off Maxwell Road – a move that benefits these firefighters as well as Milton residents, as it allows more equipment to be kept near potential fires more often in the Crabapple, Sweet Apple and Arnold Mill areas .

Meanwhile, Milton moved quickly to make Station 41 safe and habitable once again. Support from City Council helped expedite a multi-step process that included a thorough assessment of the situation, remediation of mold and making necessary physical modifications to the structure.

The latter involved replacing the HVAC system at Station 41, fresh paint and new lockers for the firefighters to store their gear in.
