“I think our leadership did a great job bringing us a building that will serve us for decades to come in a cost-effective manner without spending any more money than we needed to,” said East Jefferson Fire-Rescue spokesman Bill Beezley.
The open house will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the new Wally Westergaard Fire Station at 9193 Chimacum Road and will feature hot dogs and balloons as well as guided tours of the station, in use since Sept. 27.
The 11,000-square-foot station can house five paid firefighters in upgraded living quarters that include a large kitchen with a separate refrigerator for each shift, a lounge area with a wide-screen TV, a weight room, bedrooms and locker rooms.
