Building Renovation Approved!
Municipality: Mount Joy
Date: Thu, Jul 10, 2014 19:00
Address: FDMJ

For over two years, the five-member building committee has worked to put together plan to renovate the fire station. This plan was proposed and approved tonight by the fire department membership. Phase 1 of the process will focus on the Engine Bay as well as some station-wide systems. This will be the first major renovation to the building since it was completed in 1980, over 30 years ago. A brief outline of the construction goals is listed below.

  • Upgrade the current station-wide phone system.
  • Upgrade the station-wide security system.
  • Upgrade the fire alarm system.
  • Removal of old heating system in Engine Bay.
  • Upgrade lighting station-wide to install motion sensors and energy efficient light fixtures.
  • Renovate Engine Bay level bathroom to meet ADA requirements.
  • Install new gear lockers in Engine Bay to better hold turnout gear. Current lockers were built by members when fire fighters wore less equipment and the equipment was lighter.
  • Install an emergency generator capable of powering the entire station.
  • New paint throughout Engine Bay (current paint in Engine Bay is original to 1980!)
  • Cleaning and resealing of Engine Bay floor with new painted lines.
  • Renovating the IT room to house all necessary equipment.

This project is scheduled to begin on September 1 and be completed within 75 days.
