    Lewes, Rehoboth fire companies ready for new shared substation

    (Lewes-AP) -- Firefighters in the Lewes and Rehoboth Beach fire
    departments believe pooling their resources will allow them to
    respond to fires more quickly.
    Construction is almost finished on a one-point-one (m)
    million-dollar substation that will give firefighters in the two
    companies near Angola a shared base.
    Fire officials believe the substation will cut response times by
    as much as four to seven minutes.
    The shared substation is believed to be a first in Delaware. The
    new building will be owned by both companies, and operating costs
    will be shared.
    Lewes Fire Chief Gordon Davis says the substation will relieve a
    lot of stress, noting that it currently can take as long as 15
    minutes to respond to a call in the Angola area.
