The New Germany Volunteer Fire Department will be building a new fire station at the corner of Highway #10 and Fire Hall Road. This new building will include six truck bays, meeting and equipment rooms as well as space for a community RCMP office and the New Germany and Area Food Bank. The new facility will replace the existing station which has been enlarged and repaired over the past 50 years and needs many upgrades to meet today's fire fighting demands.  The new fire station will primarily be paid for from monies raised by the fire department and their savings, as well as by the ratepayers of the area served by the New Germany Volunteer Fire Department.  Construction is planned to start in September.

Chief Blair Lantz displays the building permit for the local newspaper.
