POLAND, Ohio (WKBN) — Firefighters with the Western Reserve Joint Fire District proudly showed off their new home.

Station 92 was dedicated on Sunday, complete with a new 8,000-square-foot addition.

The building includes storage space, offices, a locker room and a bunk room.

The addition cost $2.3 million and brings together crews from the Village of Poland and the city of Poland.

“A lot of it for the safety of the folks, our fire department, to not have to back out on a main highway and be able to drive through a station and without having the safety of backing off 170,” said assistant chief Jim Stewart.

The project was delayed in January when several walls under construction collapsed during high winds.

No one was injured, but it did leave behind several thousands of dollars in damages.
