PHOTOS: Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Sunday marked the next chapter that will allow firefighters, police and other first responders to prepare for emergencies without leaving Carbon County.
The rain also didn’t stop various fire companies, law enforcement agencies, elected officials, friends and family from gathering on the Broad Mountain in Nesquehoning to ring in and celebrate the nearly complete Emergency Operations Training Center.
The $10 million center has been in the works for over a decade.
Fittingly, the new center was named after a firefighter with over a half century of experience, who was a driving force for the project.
The Carbon County Firemen’s Association officially named the new center after Commissioners’ Chairman Wayne E. Nothstein.
