Deal Would Allow City Fire Personnel onto Ft. McPherson

Atlanta lawmakers and officials from Fort McPherson are crafting an agreement that would allow the city’s fire department access to the post so personnel can become familiar with the Army’s facilities prior to the 126-year-old base’s pending closure.

The deal would ensure McPherson has adequate fire and rescue coverage during the transition period prior to its Sept. 15 closure when the city will be responsible for responding to emergencies there, reported Cascade Patch. The city council could approve an agreement on Aug. 15.

After a deal is reached, the city’s next goal will be to allow its police onto McPherson, according to the story.
