LCFD1 groundbreaking for new fire station
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Cheyenne locals gathered at Archer Parkway to witness the groundbreaking of Laramie County Fire District One’s new fire station.
Cheyenne’s Chamber of Commerce personnel were present as well as fire personnel from the department. The project was approved by taxpayers in 2017 as part of a sixth penny ballot vote.
The fire station at Archer will provide much needed fire and medical services and protection to the eastern areas of Laramie County.
The $2.1 million project is projected to be functional in September of 2021.
Fire Chief Darrick Mittlestadt said that they will be assigning some equipment and trucks over to the new station. He also said that they are always looking for more volunteers as they like to have at least two firefighters on duty at all times.
“We’re really hoping there’s not too many delays or any issues so again in September is when we are planning to get the station up and running,” said Mittlestadt.
The fire district is looking forward to the completion of the project and is grateful for the support of the community.
