“The new building provides safety features for our team that we did not have before such as an exhaust system in the apparatus bay,” Fire Chief John Bostwick said. “It allows for more room for our fire division and better living quarters as well.”

The building also features improved office space, training room, and better equipment access for the public safety team. The location of the building will also help improve response time for the department.

“Together, with fire and police under one roof, we can increase the efficiency of the department and safety in our community,” said Police Chief Jeff Olson.
