One of Atlanta’s largest Fire stations was closed back in 2008. Ever since it closed it took the hard work of 5 different stations to cover the area which that one station covered on its own. The hard work of Councilwoman Cleta Winslow for 5 years has finally paid off, as the station will soon reopen.

ATLANTA -- City Councilwoman Cleta Winslow still can't believe it's about to happen.

"I'm in the dream state," she told 11 Alive News on Wednesday. 
After almost five years of fighting, she has finally helped find a way to reopen Atlanta's Fire Station 7, closed in the summer of 2008.

Located at the corner of West Whitehall and Oak Streets in the West End area, it was a casualty of then Mayor Shirley Franklin's budget cuts when the city council refused her tax increase request.

"The fire station was the second busiest fire station in the City of Atlanta and it's taken five stations to cover this area," said Councilwoman Winslow.
