The chief said this is something his firefighters deserve to have.

“This is their home away from home. They spend 24 hours here every third day. So, we want to make it as feasible and comfortable and safe for them as possible.”

Chief Hart also said that no service will be interrupted during the renovation of the building, which is expected to start next spring.
