    SPRINGVILLE Most new buildings open with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, but the new fire station in Springville will be dedicated Saturday with the cutting of a fire hose.

    "It's tradition," said Springville Fire Chief Phil Whitney. "We're a fire department. We cut hoses."

    The dedication starts at 10 a.m. and is open to the public. Adults and kids alike are invited to tour the station, climb aboard the firetrucks and ask firefighters questions, said Springville Police Lt. David Caron.

    The new $2.6 million, 20,000-square-foot fire station, with four drive-through fire bays, replaces one built in the 1960s. Whitney says there wasn't enough room in the old station to walk between the firetrucks or store all of the equipment. The new building also provides more office and training space.

    "It dresses up downtown tremendously," Whitney said of the new fire station. "It gives us more of an attractive city park and downtown area that will serve the community."

    The station, which took about a year to build, was designed with expansion in mind, he said. There is room for a 4,000-square-foot living quarters to be built, which would allow the station to have a 24-hour response team if and when demand for it increases.
