CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -
The new Central Fire Station in Cedar Rapids, which replaced the one destroyed by flooding more than five years ago, was dedicated Tuesday.
The new building, which is on 1st Ave. E near downtown, was finished back in September, and crews have actually been working out of the building for almost a month. They say they've already noticed faster response times since settling into their new digs.
"It finally is here that we're back at home, under one roof again, and we're able to respond better than we were even before the flood," said Mark English, Cedar Rapids Fire Chief.
The new fire station was built using FEMA and I-JOBS grants at a cost of $20 million.
