Construction on the Fisher Peak Fire Protection District Substation has finally started. Excavation courtesy of Owen Baldwin's loan of a bulldozer, skillfully operated by Jim Hughes, and Rich Babnick's coordination and other efforts.
This phase should be complete by August 17, and concrete work should start within two more weeks. Building delivery is expected by the third week of September, at which time we'll be cheerfully accepting all the volunteer labor we can get.
By the end of October, the building should be closed and heated, allowing the FPFPD to house trucks safe from the rigors of freezing weather, and giving us all a reason to breathe a little easier.
The interior of the building can be completed at a more leisurely pace, but should be completely finished before Thanksgiving.
