On Wednesday, Tyler Fire Chief David Coble toured a recently-constructed fire station in Tyler’s sister city of Jelenia Góra, Poland. Coble is traveling with a group of representatives from East Texas to deepen the partnership between the two communities. His Polish counterpart led the delegation on a tour of Jelenia Góra’s main fire station, an expansive and modern facility that opened in the last two years. The multi-story main station also contains a community education center, where firefighters teach children about fire safety using an immersive, museum-style exhibit. Coble also proposed they discuss a possible exchange of personnel, inviting a Jelenia Góra firefighter to stay at a Tyler fire station for a month. The East Texas delegation also watched a demonstration of firefighting apparatuses, water rescue boats, and on-site housing and training facilities.
