Two Hawaii fire stations are getting asbestos treatment, reports The Garden Island.
The Kapa‘a station was built around 1967 and, seven years later, the Lihu‘e fire station was built.
The abatement and flooring replacement in Kapa‘a should be completed this week. It started about three weeks ago. Repairs in Lihu‘e should be finished by the middle of next week.
Repairs at the Kapa‘a station will run $32,534. The repairs in Lihu‘e will cost $89,797. The county currently has budgeted $200,000 for fire-station improvements.
