Comer’s historic train depot, relocated to Spring Circle long ago, has received a new facelift and a brand new purpose – it now serves as the Comer Police Department and EMS station.
“We’re very proud of our new home,” said Comer Police Chief Dennis Bell.
The police department moved from its former location in city hall to the new location in mid-October. Comer’s Emergency Medical Services staff and ambulance joined them a short time afterwards, relocating from the Comer Volunteer Fire Department.
Inside, the building has been redone with new paint and new and refinished flooring. Chief Bell said it was important to him and to the city to keep the historical feel of the place during the facelift and modernization process. To that end, the beadboard walls remain throughout most of the building.
The building contains a lobby/waiting area, the chief’s office, restrooms and a training room that can hold up to 70 people at a time. Part of the training room has been cordoned off on two sides to provide bedding and rest areas for EMS workers, as well as for those who might need to be there for an extended time during storms, etc.
There is also a kitchen and living area for both the police and EMS.
