The Rapid City (SD) Fire Department could receive more than $15 million to remodel Fire Station 1, according to a report published by the Rapid City Journal.

The paper reported the money would come from the $20 million the city got for COVID-19 funds from the federal government.

If the city council approves the allocation, the money will be used to expand the current station from 17,400 square feet to about 40,000 square feet, the newspaper reported.

Infrastructure work and a burn building are included in the proposal, according to the paper, which also reported the department is also seeking about $1.5 million for a training tower.
