Town of Cajah’s Mountain partners with Caldwell County

Officials from Caldwell County and the Town of Cajah’s Mountain broke ground on a new EMS base and training facility. 

Cajah’s Mountain Town Council and County Commissioners have worked for 17 years to build a base in the area. The base will be located at 1901 Connelly Springs Road, along one of the most heavily-traveled roads in the state. Once the base opens, EMS personnel will be housed within minutes of one of the busiest areas in the county. 

Atriax Group, the designer and builder for the project, expects to have the $4.58 million project complete by July 2024, and the Hickory-based group has been a good fit for the project. When completed, the base and training facility will feature three double bays to hold six emergency vehicles, an EMS training bay to house the shell of an ambulance and a classroom, and a simulated Emergency Department, as well as offices and additional training space.
