The City of Springfield passed a ballot measure to fund two new houses and two replacements – a transformational project for the community and Department alike. The vision was four similar stations that prioritized health and safety, longevity, resiliency, and achieved the project budget. The process did not go as smoothly, but the team stayed focused on the goals and came out on top.
