Tusculum fire crews are dealing with cramped space and COVID-19 restrictions and hoping for an expansion, reports WVLT 8.
The fire department is spread between two buildings. Inside one, the fire truck barely fits.
The fire chief is working with the town council on a three-phase expansion project that includes a new fire station, which is expected to cost $150,000. The project had been put on hold because of the pandemic.
The added space would allow the department to consider other additions as well. This would bring the possibility of living space, areas of restrooms, a small kitchen, a meeting area just to name a few. The police department is also expected to expand into the fire station at some point.
