Wilton welcomes public to tour fire station addition
An open house and waffle breakfast was held to showcase the fire station addition, the equipment and improved safety features. A steady stream of visitors toured the facility, which was completed recently.
The $1.6 million project is a little under-budget with a few minor details to finish. “I would like to thank the town people for trusting us for putting this structure in place and spending their money wisely and keeping everyone happy and safe,” said Dick.
Cutler said the decontamination room has a shower and a washer and dryer specifically designed to wash fire gear. “If there are problems and the guys come back from a fire they can rinse things off and the gear goes right into the washer and dryer. The washer spins so fast, you think it’s going to take off. It usually comes out 90 percent dry and after that it goes in a little dryer. In two hours we have a clean set of gear.”
