Station 10

Fort Oglethorpe Fire & Rescue Station 10, originally known as Station 9, was approved to be constructed in May 1984.  The building was constructed in the fall of the same year on City property off of Macksmith Road.  After the station was built it sat dormant for several years, until Harrell Murray set up a shop in the building for fire department equipment repairs.


The late Sgt. Shannon Carlock was given the charge to help recruit firefighters for the station and a sign was posted in front of the station requesting volunteers. Shannon passed away, in 1991, before he could see the station open.


Fort Oglethorpe Fire & Rescue opened Station #10 in July 1992 on Macksmith Road.  The piece of equipment that was moved to Station 10 was bought in November 1972 for Station 1, then moved to Station 2, until it moved to Station 10.  It was a C 1000 diesel engine.  Capt. Jim Brewer was the first officer at the station.  In 1995, Chief Camp purchased a new engine for each station.  Station 10 received a 1996 Spartan.  Station 10 is operaed as a volunteer and training station.
