For years, the Belleville Fire Department had 2 stations: Station 1 and Station 2 right across the street. But, space is tight. "It was getting difficult to put all of our apparatus in there. And we had an offer to purchase that property so we sold that property," said Vince Guarrera, station improvement committee. So now the fire department is looking to build a new 2 bay station right next door to its main station, where a vacant house currently sits. Guarrera says the department is currently in talks to acquire the property. It's all in hopes of getting to the scene of an emergency more efficiently. "We need to get all of our apparatus to the scene as quickly as possible and safely as possible. By having the station here on site, our officers are able to quickly see which apparatus have already left the station and are on scene and are able to direct the remaining apparatus safely to the scene," he said.
