Cape Gazette NEWS FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 6- MOND,Y, SEPTEMBER 9, 2013 33 Lewes Fire Department building new Station 2 in Nassau : Project will cost an estimated $2.9 million community while construction is under way. A temporary The Lewes Fire Department Inc. has announced the construction of a new S'tation 2 in Nassau. Construction is scheduled to start the beginning of October, with an stimated cost of $2.9 million. Demolition of the existing station will allow for the construction of a larger and more advanced station on the same site. The current building was a prefabricated building erected in 1989 to reduce response time to the rural fire district. The building was projected to serve the community for 20 years; it has now served the community for nearly 25 years. The department conducted a long-range plan several years ago for the purpose of projecting future growth in the district. This study included, but was not limited to, location of new stations, upgrades on existing stations, additional apparatus and response times to emergencies. This information was utilized in the location and design of the new building. The new project will allow for future growth in the emergency medical service staff as medical calls are projected to exceed 3,500 medical emergencies this year with the numbers increasing each year. Projected fire and accident calls are expected to be over 600 this year. The department feels this best serves the continuously growing year-round community and its visitors. The new structure will be two stories; the first floor will have six engine bays, and several bunk rooms to house up to 20 volunteers and career staff during extended emergencies such as hurricanes and snowstorms, which the current structure does not have. A partial basement was added for storage and future growth. The second floor will have a large room for meetings, kitchen amenities and additional office space. Construction is prgjected to be complete by October 2014. There will be no disruption in emergency services to the structure will be utilized adjacent to the site. Inquiries should be directed to Preident Dale Magee or Vice President Glenn Marshall, Lewes Fire Department Inc., at 302-645- 6556. :lOok|rig [or a new Hair styl|?: Hair Artistry THE LEWES FIRE DEPARTMENT INC. has announced the construction of a new Station 2 in Nassau.
