VIDEO: Alpine Township firefighters have “officially” moved into their new home. While they’ve been operating out of the new Station One since May, the facility was dedicated on Friday. Located on Henze Drive, behind the Alpine Avenue Sam’s Club, the $3 million firehouse replaces cramped quarters and gives the department room to grow. The station features many firehouse traditions, like the large kitchen table. The table is custom-made by Ridgeline Woodcraft in Alpine and features the department’s new logo. “Anyone who understands fire and fire history knows that a lot happens around the dinner table,” Deputy Fire Chief Jeremy Kelly said. There are also several modern amenities such as separate rooms that have replaced barrack-style sleeping areas for firefighters.
