New fire tower in Ocean Springs

The City of Ocean Springs is also getting a new fire tower.

Last night, the city’s board of aldermen voted unanimously to construct a fire training tower behind the existing fire department on Bienville Boulevard.

Ocean Springs Mayor Shea Dobson tells News 25 the new tower will not only enhance public safety, but will also lower the fire rating which will result in insurance savings for residents and businesses, helping in the area’s overall economic development. “It will help with economic development. On the commercial side, we’re going to see a lot of savings for insurance for commercial, and so it’s just a win-win across the board.”

The new fire tower is slated to be complete in ten weeks.
