    Question decommissions and dedications

    We are getting close to completion of the new building for station #1 in Sterling Heights, MI. The chief has asked me to do a decommissioning ceremony for the old station and a dedication ceremony for the new station. I have a couple ceremonies for station dedication but could use some more. I have no info on station decommissioning ceremonies, can anyone help?

    Please send info to revrik@yahoo.com

    Thanks for your help!

    If there is a number on the station this should be removed and possibly replaced with a plaque with a description of the years in service etc. Lowering the flag and retirement of that flag is always nice. Last call out, Roll the rigs out of the station one last time.

    Be sure to invite the press and have a PR statement... We invite the public for new trucks/station with snow cones and a moon walk....A great time to promote the Dept and meet those we serve..... And be sure to have fun!!
