Alpaugh opens a new fire station

Thursday, February 23, 2012

A different kind of construction project could someday save a life in the South Valley town of Alpaugh.

The Tulare County Fire Department opened it's newest fire station Wednesday.

The new Apparatus Bay Building will house the department's fire engines.

The new building replaces a structure which had been in service since 1956.

Today's more modern fire engines didn't fit in the old building.

The new station also includes a modular home, which was also dedicated Wednesday.
