Guam - The Guam Fire Department commissioned the newest of its fire stations in Agat-Santa Rita this morning. The state of the art facility will provide new living and working space for the firefighters. The new fire station will serve as the command center for the southern part of the island.
GHURA director Ray Blas speaks about the $1.1 million facility, saying, "The enhancement to this fire station will produce a real long-term asset for all members of the community and to help the firefighters efficiently serve the neighborhood for decades to come."
Fire Chief Dave Peredo says this is just the beginning of the new facilities that the department will be constructing. He says they also plan on building new facilities in Yigo along the Back Road to Andersen Air Force Base, and in Merizo.
