VIDEO: After nearly 70 years as a volunteer department, Irvington Fire, just outside Omaha, officially opened and dedicated its second station. "In 2008, we had a vision that the county keeps moving this direction, so we thought we would build a satellite fire station so we can help serve the people on this end of our district," says Rescue Captain Tom Townsend on Sunday morning to a crowd of several dozen. "For me, it's continuing on what our charter members did in 1952, there were 24 members that started the volunteer fire department, and basically built what it is up to this point," says Chief Nolan Paulsen. "We're just trying to continue on what they did for their community, that they saw the needs that were needed for fire and EMS." But, this is just phase one for the station.
