Construction on the building lasted nine months and 14 days. Now, thanks to tax money, a new emergency service center is fully operational.
The grand opening was made official with a ribbon cutting and flag ceremony this afternoon.
Emergency officials say having fire fighters and EMS located in the same place will increase response time, helping citizens get the emergency care they need faster.
At the ceremony, Thomasville's mayor says ideas for another building are now in the works.
