If you want to drop off some cookies for the Franklin Park firefighters, don’t go to the old firehouse. They’ve moved out. Over the last couple of weeks, the firefighters have been putting the finishing touches on the 1 1/2-story, 24,000-square-foot building. This is facility which is 9,000-square-feet larger than the old station.
“This building is a vast improvement over the old station, which was not worth repairing,” said Bob Jarvis, president of the Franklin Park Volunteer Fire Co. to a local news outlet. The fire company began operating out of the new building Feb. 19.
Originally, there was talk about refurbishing the old station, which was built in 1949. However, when planners got into the details, it was found to be too costly to replace a roof and bring that building up to current safety codes. After all, firefighters need to be up to code. In this case, it was actually cheaper to build a new building than fix the old one. You won’t hear many complaints from the crews.
That idea of getting something new to replace something old is probably something you contend with around the house every day. It can apply to everything from shoes to a computer. The challenge becomes what do to with the old stuff. If it can be tossed out, then the choice is clear. However, if you don’t want something to go to waste, or it is too big to put in the trash, then it’s time to bring in Junk King Pittsburgh.
