The Brussels-Union-Gardner Fire Department will have plenty of room to grow in the future at its new facility on County Highway C in Brussels. The joint venture with Door County Emergency Services has benefited from local support as well as federal grants and surplus programs to help make the facility state of the art. The new building is much bigger than its old facility, featuring ample meeting and training space, a lounge, bedrooms, and large vehicle bays. BUG Fire Chief Curt Vandertie says the new fire station was built with the future in mind.
The BUG Fire Department and Door County Emergency Services will host an open house at the new southern station on June 24 from noon-3 p.m.
