My dream — and I hope you don't find this too crazy — is that I would like the people of this community to feel that if, God forbid, there were a fire, calling the fire department would actually be a wise thing to do. You can't have people, if their houses are burning down, saying, 'Whatever you do, don't call the fire department!' That would be bad."

                Good luck on the building of your new station! I'd love to get our company to where we could build one. We have troubles everywhere with our current station! (Bay not big enough, Driveway is cracked like crazy, No drainage) Just improper building!

                Keep us updated!

                              Well, I know I haven't posted any updates on the status of our station project for quite awhile. There's a very good reason for that, which is, there had not been any progress. The last photos I posted with just the concrete forms in place was about as far as we got. Shortly after those pics were taken (and before the concrete was poured), the project sort of imploded and ground to a screeching halt.

                              We ran into some problems with the contractor, the details of which I won't discuss here because there is possible (probable) litigation pending. The job site has been growing up in weeds since June while we disentagled ourselves from the original contract and advertised for a new bidder. Many lessons learned and months later, we have a new contractor and resumed construction this week.

                              Beginning at 0400 this morning, concrete has finally been poured at the site, including the main building slab, parking lot, and one of the driveways. The front apron will be poured at a later date. The new contractor is wasting no time and the project has taken off at an amazing pace. I hope it keeps up
