News

SHELBURN, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Thunderbird Fire Protection Territory members hosted an open house and dedication ceremony for their new fire station Sunday.

Funds for elements of the new station, like the roof, came from fundraising events and donations from the community.

Those at Sunday’s open house say they are proud of the work done to better the community with this new station.

“This is a world of improvement from what we were used to. It definitely tells us how dedicated the public is to allowing us to have the facilities that we need so that we can go out and further do our job to better house our equipment and to do training as well,” said Thunderbird Fire Chief John Quilliam.
