New Fire Station Dedication Set

Fairhope, Alabama

Timothy Lennicx station
A dedication ceremony for the city's fourth fire station (named for a deceased firefighter) on Parker Road will be held on December 5th at 11AM according to a fire department spokesperson; the city will take over ownership of the building from the Fairhope Volunteer Fire Department non-profit corporation.

Construction was delayed for several months due to engineering and other issues; funding was by federal grants, county property taxes, private donations, and various contributions from the city.

Although none of the city's stations are manned around the clock, staging equipment closer  will decrease response times for the northern part of town significantly.

The only issue remaining is that a woodpecker has taken up residence there: it is to be removed "humanely" by that time.

Isn't it high time at least one fire station was prfessionally manned overnight?
