Volunteer Fire District Our present building is nothing
to brag about...
building is a 24'
by 32' garage that just barely holds two of our three vehicles.
(So, you ask "Where do we keep the other one?" We have to keep it
in a separate location up Mt. Vernon Road - a situation that is not
desirable from an operating standpoint.) The present building is
located on a sliver of land between the old Lincoln Highway and Mt.
Vernon Road at the intersection of Wilder Drive SE.
The building is too small to hold our equipment. It has no
running water, no restrooms, no meeting space nor office! (How
have we been getting by all this time? We run into town to use a
restroom. We fill the trucks from a fire hydrant. We pull
the trucks out of the building and have a meeting inside - an obvious
challenge in the winter given that equipment can freeze up in a very
short time. We hold training classes in other locations such as
area church or office buildings.)
The present wood-frame building was constructed at a time when we had
only one vehicle. It has served us well; however, our needs have
changed in the years since it was built.
