The groundbreaking ceremony on June 4, 2019, took place on the site of the future Fire Station 4 at 785 E. Brannon Road and featured comments by Nicholasville officials including Mayor Pete Sutherland, Commissioner Betty Black and Fire Chief Mark Case, which followed an invocation by Fire Chaplain Dewayne Brewer.

The 7,225 square foot fire station will have a modern design that features two pull-though fire truck bays, polished concrete floor for decreased maintenance, offices and a watch desk, PPE storage rooms, an exercise room, a training room, dormitory quarters and more. It was
designed by architect Aaron Nickerson with GRW and will be built by Olympic Construction, a
local business.

The more than $3 million project is expected to take about a year to complete. This location will mark the fourth fire station in Nicholasville.
