New Fire Station

 Building the new Mount Albert (East Gwillimbury) Fire Station

December 1st is City Daily Photo Theme Day and the theme this month is People in Their Workplace.

Some of you may remember that last February one of East Gwillimbury's fire stations burned to the ground. I told you about it HERE.  Since then, the village of Mount Albert's fire engines (and whatever else firefighters need) have been temporarily housed in another corner of the village.

Screwing the plywood in place

A couple of months ago work began on the new fire station in the same place as the original one:  a foundation, cement block walls,  a roof....  Last Friday crews were facing the outside cement-block walls with plywood.

I think I'd build the whole firehouse out of stone--inside and out. :-)

It looks like the final structure will be well worthwhile.

Great pictures of the construction! Do they know how long it will take before the grand opening? Our heroes deserve only the BEST!

Sylvia K said...

Ah, what a relief to see it being rebuilt!! Terrific captures of the construction indeed!! Have to admit, I'm in favor of all stone buildings, too!!

Kate said...

Looks like a cold season for outside construction work!

That is a pretty quick rebuild schedule. A town needs a fire station!!

Every town needs one. Hope it comes up as per schedule.

This is going to be a great and impressive fire station!

Julie said...

Hopefully, more fire-retardant materials have been used in the rebuild. Terrific story for the theme.

The crew looks busy, the building is coming along fast.

Good that they are rebuilding it, and you also got some fine pictures of people at work!

I've gone for fireman too as part of the theme. Seems a popular choice. It's good to photograph our places, we keep a living document of every day life.

Judy said...

Those workers have some cold work ahead to get the building done by spring!

Sharon Anck said...

I'm glad to see a new station is being built but, boy I wouldn't want to do that work in the cold air.

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

It's good to see it rebuilt! Fire is frightening...
