For the first time since 2004, a fire truck is stationed at the city’s Gezon Parkway SW station.
City officials moved a truck there Monday as part of a long-planned effort to revamp the fire department for more efficiency.
The Gezon Parkway fire house, fire station number 3, had been shuttered.
The truck will be operated by paid on-call firefighters.
The Gezon station also is being used as a staging point for an American Medical Response ambulance. Ambulance crews began using the building in late April as part of a partnership with the city.
Wyoming police Chief James Carmody said that re-opening the Gezon station is part of the city’s ongoing plan to consolidate fire and police operations into a public safety unit.
In recent months, the city has added five full-time firefighters. Plans call for adding more reserve firefighters to bolster an existing force of 30 reserve firefighters.
