A new fire hall in Espanola, Ont., will officially be opened on Thursday, June 27, 2019, with a hose-cutting ceremony.

The event begins at 1 p.m. and runs till 7 p.m. to accommodate people on shiftwork. The public will be able to tour the facility and talk to staff.

The fire hall has four bays, comfortable change rooms for firefighters, a kitchen area, and a training centre which may eventually be a hub for training firefighters from across northeastern Ontario.

The one-storey fire hall, just under 8,000-square-feet, was built by Lignum Builders.
