Firefighters moved into the new 13,000-square-foot Morrisville Fire Station 1 on Thursday. The facility cost $3 million and includes three fire truck bays, 10 dorm rooms, a day room, kitchen, training room, exercise room and offices.
The new building should last for the next 50 years, said Fire Chief Todd Wright. It is about double the size of the original Fire Station 1, built in 1955, at 100 Morrisville Carpenter Road.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new station will be at 10 a.m. March 14 at 200 Town Hall Drive. The public is invited to the ceremony which will include a training demonstration and tours of the new station.
