Environment Assessment for the Proposed Theodore Fire Station, Mobile County, Theodore, Alabama (June 2011)
The City of Mobile Fire and Rescue Department applied for and was awarded funding under Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Assistance for Firefighters Grant (AFG) for the purpose of constructing a Fire Station near the intersection of Old Military Road and Bellingrath Road in Theodore, Alabama. The Community of Theodore was recently annexed into the City of Mobile. Prior to annexation, the community relied on volunteer fire departments located physically outside the area that was annexed. Now that the area is within the city limits of Mobile, state law requires the City of Mobile to provide all emergency services to this area. This Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, the President’s Council on Environmental Quality regulations to implement NEPA (40 Code of Federal Regulations Parts 1500-1508), and FEMA’s regulations implementing NEPA (44 CFR Part 10).
