Just a few days over a year after beginning this journey, we have raised the flag over the new Franklin Park VFC No. 1 Fire Station. Construction took a little longer than we had originally planned, but it was well worth the wait. This station, like the one that originally stood at this site, will certainly serve our community well for generations.

The trucks, gear, and emergency support supplies / equipment were moved into the new station garages on Saturday February 10, 2018, and we transferred our administrative functions to the new station over the past week. So as of today both administrative and emergency operations have returned to normal.

We answered our first official emergency call from the new station on February 14, 2018 at 7:23 PM for an incident on Interstate 79, all the new systems worked well.

Some construction activities and non-critical equipment installations will continue for the next several weeks as we go through the punch list process, but we plan to have that wrapped up prior to holding a public open house and dedication April 14, 2018. (Facebook link below, be sure to follow us and plan to attend!)

Check back again in a few weeks, I'm assembling a timeline of photographs covering the entire project from nearly 64 gigabytes of photos taken over the past year.

Last but not least, we would like to thank the Borough of Franklin Park for loaning us some of their garage and storage space during the construction process. Without the space provided to us, emergency operations during construction would have been much more challenging.
