Sandy Hook Volunteer Fire and Rescue is inviting residents to see their new renovated and expanded substation. It will be formally dedicated at noon. Members will be on hand to answer questions about the station and to lead tours.
Chief Bill Halstead says they not only serve the district, but the entire town and even the region through mutual aid.
The substation at 249 Berkshire Road is being dedicated to Richard Andrews. He was a 63-year member of the department and instrumental in building the facility in the late 1960s. He was also instrumental in getting their main station on Riverside Road. The dedication is at noon.
Two new bays were added. They were operating out of a two and a half bay building with no kitchen area, dayroom area for the members or storage.
Halstead hopes neighbors who have been seeing the renovations go on since November come out to see what has been accomplished. The open house is from 11am to 2pm.
