MERRILL, Wis. (WSAU) -- Merrill officials will cut the ribbon, celebrating the completion of their new fire station Thursday.
The firefighters have been packing and moving equipment from the old 1915 structure to their new building . The new three-point-five million dollar structure will be the base of operations for the firefighters and the paramedics, who functioned for years from a building that was no longer up to the task.
Along with that new building, Merrill’s fire department will also have two new fire trucks to work with, thanks to a generous area foundation.
The ribbon cutting at the new fire station is scheduled for 1 o’clock.
