For those curious as to why the new Station 4 has not been opened yet.

The fiber line is needed for dispatch to alert the station of a call and also for the phone system.After months of delay with DTE and its authorization to attach our Fiber Optic Cable to DTE poles on Schoenherr between Wing Drive and the new Shelby Township Fire Station #4 on the corner of 25 Mile Rd and Schoenherr Rd, we are finally back on track. We expect the fiber installation to be completed by the end of October and once this is finished, the new fire station will open.

If not for the DTE delay, the new fire station would have opened right after Labor Day.

On this day... 18 years ago 246 people went to sleep in preparation for their morning flights. 2,606 people went to sleep in preparation for work in the morning. 343 firefighters went to sleep in preparation for their morning shift. 60 police officers went to sleep in preparation for morning patrol. 8 paramedics went to sleep in preparation for the morning shift. None of them saw past 10:00am Sept 11, 2001.
In one single moment life may never be the same. Tonight, before you go to sleep in preparation for your life tomorrow, kiss the ones you love, snuggle a little tighter, and never take one second of your life for granted.

We will never forget! 🇺🇸 9/11/01
