Ground Broken for New Cajah’s Mountain E.M.S. Base

Officials from Caldwell County and the Town of Cajah’s Mountain broke ground Friday (May 31) on a new E.M.S. base and training facility. Cajah’s Mountain Town Council and the Caldwell County Board of Commissioners have worked for 17 years to build a base in the area. The new facility is expected to result in faster response times.

The base will be located at 1901 Connelly Springs Road. Atriax Group, the designer and builder for the project, expects to have the $4.58 million project complete by July 2024. When completed, the base and training facility will feature three double bays to hold six emergency vehicles, an E.M.S. training bay to house the shell of an ambulance, a classroom, a simulated Emergency Department, offices, and additional training space.
