Goodyear firefighters have begun using their new facility, Station 181, which will be formally dedicated during a virtual ribbon-cutting later this week, reports Litchfield Park Independent.
The ceremony will stream live on the city’s Facebook page, @goodyearazgov.
The 15,855-square-foot station is the second new fire station to open in Goodyear this year. The first was the 12,587-square-foot fire station that was dedicated with a virtual ribbon-cutting March 3.
Each fire station features a decontamination corridor that allows firefighters to decontaminate their turnout gear, a vestibule that reduces their exposure to cancer-causing contaminants by separating the clean residence side from the “dirty” business side, and a second decontamination corridor that allows firefighters to rid their bodies of contaminants.
