New station hopes to increase numbers, training

Baileys Harbor is the latest community to see its fire department get a long-overdue facilities upgrade. Earlier this month, the town approved by a wide margin the construction of a new fire station on the site of its current one at Park Road. Baileys Harbor Fire Chief Brian Zak is happy the new space will allow the department to have a little more elbow room when it comes to training, their equipment, and other daily tasks. He is also hopeful the facility will aid in its recruitment of more volunteer firefighters. The old station will have to be torn down sometime in March to make way for its replacement, which Zak says will force equipment to get shuffled around for a few months.

If all goes to plan, the new Baileys Harbor Fire Station should be ready for occupancy by next November. Jacksonport and Brussels-Union-Gardner Fire Departments have all gotten new facilities built within the last two years.
