Yesterday our Station 92 dorm remodel began. Thanks to our Common Council for approving the transition from communal to individual, private spaces for our Firefighter/Paramedics as they work 24 hour shifts. The pandemic has challenged our operation in many ways but sleeping in open spaces is certainly a weak spot. (See temporary draping we used to separate spaces.) Generally not having private space for our members is another potential pitfall.
Already budgeted 2020 station maintenance money is being used to complete this project. This station remains open with Firefighter/Paramedics relocated to other areas in the station. We will unveil the "after" pictures in a few weeks. Thanks for the support as we try to better protect our members.
