Fire department acquires land for fill site

Two local businesses recently helped the Brussels-Union-Gardner Fire Department secure the land they needed to build an important water fill site pond. With the help of John and Polly Alberts and the owners of the Belgian Delight, the B.U.G. Fire Department will be able to build the water fill site pond near its station off of Highway DK. By having the water fill site pond located there, it will not only help the department in its response times to area fires, it also plays a crucial role in their training efforts. B.U.G. Fire Chief Curt Vandertie says it is just another example of the type of support they are blessed to have in the community.

Thanks to the support of the community both through grants, donations and volunteer hours, the water fill site pond and the accompanying dry hydrant piping will be installed at zero cost to the department’s budget and no impact on taxes.
