A recently renovated firehouse at the Wisconsin Air National Guard’s 128th Air Refueling Wing is enhancing training and helping ensure readiness for emergencies at the base, airport, and in surrounding areas.
Firefighters at the 128th Air Refueling Wing moved into their new firehouse this fall after nearly two years of renovations at their facility at General Mitchell Field.
For years the firefighters operated out of what was once the base motor pool. In addition to the building not being designed to house fire fighters, it was also far too small to hold the number of personnel needed to be on shift. This meant some members on shift would have to occupy offices in the building next to the fire house.
Now, after a complete renovation of the old building, and additions to the existing structure, the base fire fighters have the space and utilities they need to operate out of one building. WANT TO READ MORE ABOUT THIS? CLICK HERE!
