Coalville fire station set to upgrade

Fire station will undergo necessary repairs

The North Summit Fire District is planning numerous repairs to the Coalville Fire Station in order to make the station safer and easier to heat in the winter.

According to North Summit Fire District Board Member Mark Robertson, the district has borrowed $95,000 from Zions Bank in order to finance the repairs.

"We want to redo the bay door because the front of it is cracked, tear out the front wall of the building and replace it with a steel frame-insulated structure," Robertson said. "We also want to add steel siding and insulate the fire truck bays."

Robertson said that the fire district pays about $60,000 a year to heat the building and the upgrades should help substantially bring down that price. The rain gutter and concrete near the building will also be repaired.

"These are repairs that have been needed for a while and are nothing fancy, just necessary upgrades," Robertson said.

The fire district will still operate out of the building while it is under construction, which is set to begin on June 11 and last for about a year.
