We are in a rapid growing community and are out growing our current Fire House
The current Fire House
The current fire house was built in the 1950's with 25 members, 5 trucks and we ran about 50 calls a year. 3 bay addition was built in 1990.
We currently support 24/7 operations with up to 40 members answering around 400 calls per year
reasons for the new Fire house
With the increase in business downtown, responding to the fire house and parking for responders has become difficult, We don't have room to expand at our current location, and there is more risk while responding with apparatus from the current fire house on to Main St.
The size of fire apparatus is larger and heavier.
We are running out of storage space and some items have to be stored offsite.
Apparatus has to be moved to hook up the boat or rescue ATV thus delays response time
Access to gear locker along side of apparatus that is responding to the call is unsafe
