Alburnett (IA) Opens Fire Station

The Alburnett Fire Department celebrated a fire station with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, reports KCRG.

The all-volunteer fire department has outgrown the former facility which is 70-years-old. Fire officials said that the smaller building could impact response times with bigger fire trucks that could make take putting gear on longer.

Bethany Sarazin, Alburnett’s current mayor, said the final cost totaled out to about $1.5 million, as the city had to both acquire some land for the new building and then build it, and it was paid for through city funding, plus grants and fundraising.
