Using public and private funds, firefighters in Boswell (PA) hope to have a new fire station by early 2022, according to a report published by The Tribune-Democrat.

Groundbreaking for Boswell Volunteer Fire Department’s new home was held on Wednesday (Oct. 6) afternoon, the newspaper reported, adding the new facility will have a high-bay garage for apparatus, gear stalls, sleeping quarters and a lounge, as well as storage areas and offices for the fire and the ambulance services.

Construction on the new building on Hower Avenue, the site of the department’s social hall and grove, will take about four months, according to the report.

Funding for the project will partly come from a $500,000 grant from the Pennsylvania Redevelopment Assistance Capital program as well as donations from a person outside of the region who learned of the department’s need for more space and decided to help, the newspaper reported, adding that the anonymous donor will cover the different between the grant and the final cost of the project.
