Councillor Lloyd and I took a tour through the new fire hall, at the corner of High and Third Streets, today. It’s still under construction, but the main components are finished and the firefighters have moved in. It’s an impressive place. Well-designed, well-built (using a lot of local builders and materials!). Make sure you attend the open house when the building is officially completed, this fall. We should all be proud of this place: it sets standards not only for this town, but for other fire services across the province.
Here are some images to whet your appetite for visit. Bring your camera when you come!
The outside. Wood, glass and stone frontage. Very nice!
Shiny! And not just the floor.
The giant doors open quickly for vehicles to get in and out in a hurry.
This will be the emergency control room, used to coordinate services in case of a disaster.
More photos when it’s a bit further along and closer to the official opening.
