MISHAWAKA – Mishawaka’s newest fire station is open.
An official dedication ceremony was held on Sunday for the new station number 4 at 3000 East Harrison Road. Public tours were given, and there was quite a large turnout.
The new building replaces the city’s old fire station on Lincolnway East that was built back in 1929.
Instead of a ribbon cutting Sunday, officials connected a new fire hose with one from the 1929 era.
“For one thing, the old station on Lincolnway is too small to fit today’s apparatus,” said Fire Chief Dale Freeman. “Also with today’s technology, the wiring infrastructure we have in here is more state of the art than in the 1929 building.”
