Spout Springs Emergency Services (SSES) held a grand opening ceremony on March 4 at Station #2 on Highway 24/27 to celebrate the completion of the renovation project.

The ceremony was the highlight of a day-long open house that was hosted by Bob Doberstein, president of the Spout Springs Emergency Services Fire Board, and SSES Fire Chief Alan Jarvis.

Members of the local community, SSES firefighters and Harnett County leadership were on hand for the ribbon-cutting ceremony that marked the formal re-opening of Station 2, which covers the western portion of Harnett County.

During the ceremony, Jarvis presented Doberstein with a bronze plaque that will be mounted on the front of the firehouse. The plaque describes the dedication of Station 2 to Doberstein in honor of the many years of service to Spout Springs Emergency Services. He has been involved with Spout Springs Emergency Services for more than 30 years, back when the department was known as Spout Springs Rural Volunteer Fire Department.

The renovation of Station #2 was a four-month project that involved major modifications to the existing kitchen, dining area and bathrooms, as well as the addition of a training room, lounge and sleeping quarters.
