The Burns Harbor Fire Department showed off its new E-One fire engine and building addition at a wetting ceremony and ribbon-cutting last night.

Members of the public gathered to watch the new truck, which was built over the course of a year at the E-One facility in Florida, doused with water and pushed into its bay by members of the Department.

The new addition to the BHFD building has a classroom space with seating for 50, extra offices and bathrooms, and quarters for the Town’s ambulance crew. The addition was funded by the Burns Harbor Redevelopment Commission (RDC).

Fire Chief Bill Arney invited the public to tour the new addition after RDC President Eric Hull and member Nick Loving cut the ribbon on the door.

RDC member Ray Poparad also presented Arney with a plaque commemorating his 30 years of service and leadership in the BHFD.
