The new fire station will be near Interstate 40 and State Route 66 interchange. The area is considered the gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

“Our fire departments do critical work to keep our communities safe,” the lawmakers said in a joint statement.  “These funds will allow us to provide much-needed safety infrastructure so that our firefighters are better equipped to save lives and protect the property of residents and businesses in Kodak.  We thank our local leaders for their partnership as well as my colleagues in the House and Senate for approving this very worthy project. “
