It has been 20 years since the HIFR and the community first began talks about renewing the fire hall, five years since we settled on the rebuild plan, and almost two years since the ground was broken for the the new building. Last week all of the deficiencies were fixed and we started the move across the street.
The trucks and the bunker gear were the first items moved, followed by the kitchen, living space furniture, and first aid supplies. At that point we began responding to the new fire hall for all calls.
The following week we moved the work bench, air cylinder fill station, and laundry facilities. There is still the contents of the storage shed, a few boxes of ancient files, some books, and miscellaneous items to move over. That will all happen over the next few weeks.
Everyone has worked hard to make this move happen but Rob Zielinski and Ian Emberton have put in an incredible amount of time to get all of our systems up and running. Without their dedication we would still be weeks away from where we are now.
