The Brussels-Union-Gardner Fire Department will cap off Fire Prevention Week on Sunday by showing off their newly improved station. The B.U.G. Fire Department’s Gardner station now includes new apparatus bays, an improved electrical system, a gear closet, and more. Fire Chief Curt Vandertie says he cannot thank the community enough for their support for the improved station they now call home.
The station improvements were a part of a $2.8 million referendum approved in 2016 that will include a new facility in Brussels slated to open in the spring. The open house of the Gardner station will run from 10 a.m. to noon on Sunday.
