Open house at newly-renovated St-Isidore Fire Station

On Sunday, September 23, 2018, The Nation Municipality organized an Open House event to allow members of the public to visit the newly-renovated St-Isidore Fire Station.

Firefighters from The Nation Fire Department were present to greet members of the public and hot dogs were served for lunch. A representative from Fire Service Women Ontario (FSWO) was also there to chat with the women who were interested in becoming a firefighter. FSWO’s main goal is to encourage, promote and advance women in the fire service.

Renovations at the St-Isidore Fire Station started when the St-Isidore Municipal Library moved to Main Street. The extra space allowed the municipality to add a large conference room, a separation between the station garage and the offices, proper showers for decontamination of firefighters after calls, an office for the Station Chief and one for the Fire Chief, a space compliant with accessibility standards and an alternate Emergency Operations Centre for the municipality in case of an emergency.

“These renovations were a necessity. Firefighters are very proud of the work that has been done and are happy to now have a better work environment. These renovations allowed them to have a room for trainings, classes and meetings” explains Daniel R. Desforges, Station Chief for the St-Isidore Fire Station.
