Just as we had finished setting up for the Christmas party we got an EMS call.
Station 62 is the main duty station so we have a large amount of live-ins and on duty crew so the kitchen can get pretty busy during meal times; thanks to a State Legislative grant we were able to remodel the kitchen. The old space was cramped, lacked storage space, didn’t have enough cooking areas (stoves, microwaves)and didn’t have enough room for everyone to eat together. We were able to take down a wall to add floor space and we removed a window so more cabinets could be added. New flooring, cabinets and counter tops were installed, the new space is spacious, sanitary and allows the crews to eat together. We are so grateful that we were able to receive this grant and make the much needed improvements.
