According to a report from Wyoming News Now, locals gathered at Archer Parkway in Cheyenne, Wyoming, for the groundbreaking of Laramie County Fire District One’s (LCFD1’s) new fire station, which will provide much needed fire and medical services and protection to the eastern areas of the county.
The $2.1 million project is expected to open in September 2021.
Cheyenne’s Chamber of Commerce personnel were also present as well as LCFD1 staff. The project was approved by taxpayers in 2017 as part of a sixth penny ballot vote.
LCFD1 Chief Darrick Mittlestadt said that the department will assign some equipment and trucks to the new station. He also said that the department needs more volunteers and would like to have at least two members on duty at all times.
