Columbus firefighters have pushed in a fire truck to celebrate the opening of a fire station, reports The Columbus Dispatch.

City Council approved $9.4 million in July 2019 for construction of the station, which replaces the old station that was built in the 1950s. 

The new station can house up to 15 people in single-person dormitory rooms. Like a fire station that opened last year, this station is focused on health.

A transition locker room is located immediately off the garage area, allowing firefighters to change out of their uniforms without carrying carcinogens or other materials from fire scenes into the living areas of the station.
