Guam - Ground was broken on the new Agat Fire Station this morning, just a few feet down from where crews are constructing the new Agat Police Precinct.  The $1.1 million project is being funded by a community development block ARRA grant funneled through the Guam Housing and Urban Renewal Authority. 

GHURA Director Benny Pinaula says the new station is part of the overall plan to provide better service throughout the island, telling KUAM News, "So that we cover the three different regions throughout the island of Guam. So we'll have a coverage area all through the south here and it will definitely serve a great purpose and be a great service to the people that live down here."

The project is expected to be completed by this November.
