SIOUX CENTER, Iowa (KCAU) – Sioux Center Fire Department (SCFD) receives a $100,000 award from Perdue Foundation to help fund a new project.
The city currently has two fire stations. Station No. 2 holds gear and fire trucks for the departments, 40 volunteers.
This grant will help build a new station that will replace the current facility.
The $1.3 million project will provide the city a new 7,200 square foot, four-bay structure that will better accommodate its fire engines and gear.
“It’s a huge day. An enjoyable day. Humbling in the fact that to receive a gift like this for something we want to say we deserve, but at the same point, it’s a gift that we never expected,” said David Vanholland, SCFD Fire Chief.
The City of Sioux Center plans to break ground on the Fire Station No. 2 project in summer of 2020 with an anticipated completion date of spring of 2021.
