The Thedford Volunteer Fire Department will soon be moving into a new building thanks to the community.The current fire station in Thedford was built in the 1960s. The department has upgraded its equipment since then, and now there is a minimal amount of space inside the building to operate.
The new building will have seven bays. The fire trucks will be parked in four of them, the ambulances will occupy two more and the last one will be a service bay. The service bay will also be reserved for possible further expansion in the future.
The fire department in Thedford is a volunteer fire department, and Mike Finney said the support from the community means a lot. He said the project would not be possible with out them.
The goal is to have the 130 by 60 foot building fully built and the department can move into the building by the middle of this month.
The new fire hall is located on a plot of land that was donated by Tony and Sandy Booth.
