After years of planning the new 2.5 million dollar Fire Station# 3 has started it's year long journey. The original Firehouse has been taken down, Firefighters and equipment have been moved to an old American Red Cross Building next door. A large structure was erected to protect the apparatus, and modifications had to be made to the Red Cross Building for the Firefighters. The new Firehouse will have 3 drive thru bays, and will be Storm Safe. The new station will have state of the art ventilation system for the apparatus, also Fire Gear will be kept away from the main station along with washing area.
