IN PROGRESS (Last Updated: 4/8/2015)
Our fire hall has changed dramatically throughout the years but the location has remained mostly the same. The following photos shows how our fire hall came to be:
The Department’s Fire Truck was stored in a small building attached to the side of T.K. Craig’s garage. (Photo taken in 1940s). This building burned down but the Fire Trucks were successfully “rescued” by former Chief Orlie McLean.
A new edition was added to the top of the building. This edition would someday hold a full kitchen, hall / meeting area, bathrooms and an office for the Chief.
The Irving Gas Bar and Fire Hall shared a relationship for many years. An agreement was made to have a Firefighter man the gas station during hours of operation so the department would always have a driver / firefighter on duty. This photo shows the hall with new siding and new signage.
