Officials Open New Ivy Fire Rescue Station


August 29, 2013

The new Ivy Fire Rescue Station is officially open.

Dozens of people were on hand for the dedication and ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday.

University of Virginia President Teresa Sullivan and Albemarle County Supervisor Ann Mallek cut the ribbon.

The new station has a kitchen, fitness room, and sleeping quarters.

Officials say it will improve service to Ivy and surrounding areas.

"What this means to the average citizen here in the community is lower response time," says Albemarle County Fire Rescue Chief Dan Eggleston. "It's also an addition to the fire rescue system in general. So it's a great addition. We're very happy to announce that this is a venture that combines both current volunteers and helps staff the apparatus here."

A public celebration is scheduled for September.
