Ceremony Planned for New Fire Station

(La Porte, IN) – A new fire station in La Porte will be christened this week.  According to the mayor’s office, a hose uncoupling ceremony is scheduled Thursday at the new Fire Station No. 3 at 710 Daytona St. about two blocks south of Indiana 2 on the city’s east side.  The ceremony is slated to begin at 3:30 p.m.


The fire station, build at an expense of about $1.7 million, replaces the much smaller fire station to the east at Boyd Boulevard and Indiana 2.  A Popeyes restaurant is planned where the old fire station has stood since the 1960’s.


Fire Chief Andy Snyder said the new facility has twice the space and room for  future expansion, if necessary.  He indicates the old fire station lacked adequate space and due to how the parcel was configured, fire trucks had to pull into traffic at a busy intersection then back up into their bays when they completed a run.  The new fire station fixes those challenges.
