NEW STATION 194 IN RED ROCK VILLAGE

The Fire District and Pulte have been working feverishly to finish the new station. The Pinal County building department issued our Certificate of Occupancy at the end of last week. Pulte and the general contractor, Vorholzer Construction, and the contractor for the apparatus bay, Travis Even, have us on track to complete the project far ahead of schedule and under budget.   The bay floors will be sealed this week and they will need to cure for another week or possibly two. Once the property is deeded over from Pulte to the District (Nov 7th?),  we will be able to complete the installation of the computer, telephone, radio and emergency alerting systems. Lockers, gear storage and window coverings will be built. Finally, furniture will be brought in.   We will move trucks and crews into the buildings without delay. On the first day that we are there,  we will notify the Insurance Services Office (ISO) that the lower rating can be used to calculate property insurance rates.   I hesitate to guess when we will open the station. We are tentatively planning a Grand Opening for December 13th. Thank you to everyone for your understanding. We are proud of the way the station is turning out and I promise that we are pushing as hard as we can.
