While it may appear completed from the outside, the new East Fire Hall in the Highlands still has a few cosmetic touches to finish before the public can view its splendour.
Deputy Fire Chief Gregg Fletcher said they have been in their new digs and responding to calls for a few weeks now and are very excited about the new space. He said a public grand opening is in the works and the details will be discussed at the next officers’ meeting.
“It’s done but not furnished yet,” he said, adding that once they get furniture for the offices and training rooms they’ll be completely up and running with everything in its rightful place.
While the furniture may be missing, the fire trucks are not. Fletcher said they were excited about adding another bay and having four trucks in the space.
But most importantly he said that the new hall would meet all safety standards, while the old hall was basically falling down.
