Boardman Township looking to replace main fire station

Updated:

BOARDMAN TOWNSHIP, Ohio - The Boardman Township Fire Department hosted an open house at its main fire station on Saturday.

The fire station was built in 1923 and in recent years it has had mold and structural integrity problems.  It also is not capable of accommodating new fire equipment.

So the township is looking at plans to build a new main fire station to replace it.

"Right now we're not asking for any bond issues. We're trying to work within the township budget and make this a long term 40 year purchase. We want to see if we can handle everything with our current finances," said Jason Loree, Boardman Township Administrator.

At Saturday's open house firefighters demonstrated techniques for rescuing drivers from wrecked vehicles. They also demonstrated fire safety and how to use a fire extinguisher.

The township is home to 3,300 and 19,000 residential properties. Daytime population reaches about 110,000, but township residents number a bit more than 40,000.
