LONG SLIM LONG, CONTRACTOR 411 Argonne Dial 636-8742 PAINTING, DECORATING, PAPER HANGING Open House for new Fire Station No. 3 will be 1 to 4 p.m Sunday. The Marine Corps Color Guard will raise the flag. And Mayor John G. Christy will cut the ribbon--not with a pair of scissors but with a fire axe. Besides showing visitors their new fire station and equipment, firemen will present each woman with a carnation, hand out balloons to children and serve refreshments--soda, coffee and cake, The new station is on the north side of Industrial Drive, just west of the Dix Road intersection. Jefferson City's firemen are proud of their month-old fire station, Fire Station No. 3. The S.62 square-foot station cost $153,626. The Works Progress Administration built the city's other two stations in 1934. Cost for both was $50,000. "The main difference," said Assistant Chief Vincent Will- meno, "is that this (new) station is all on one floor. There are no poles to slide down." The new station'is better in other ways, too. It has drive-through doors. Trucks drive in the rear and out the front. It has a $20,000 heating-air conditioning system. It has clothes closets. It has plenty of room in the event more firemen are hired later. The West End Station, on the other hand, was built for only six men, and has an 11-man crew. New station meets specific city needs Ail are reasons .why eight firemen were glad to be transferred to the new station. Those eight, firemen each work every other day, on four man shifts. One 24-hour shift consists of Capt. Howard Dearing, Lt. George Coulter, Joseph Duncan and Wayland Ponder. They are replaced every other day by Capt. Roy Hogg, Lt. Donald Thompson, Louis Fisher Jr. and Jerry Payne. Their 10-bed dormitory area is divided by the bathroom, with five bunks on each side. A flip of the dial, and they can turn off heat and turn on air conditioning. Other features include an office, a classroom with blackboards and television, an all- electric kitchen, a utility room and an apparatus floor for a ladder and a pumper truck and for equipment. But firemen have work to do, too. Capital Citians approved Fire Station No. 3 on April 4, 1966. At that time, they overwhelmingly passed a $700,000 bond issue for three new stations and modern equipment. It was early in 1966 that local citizens beg -,n talking seriously about building new fire stations. A steering committee met Madison r Dunkiin 636-7113 at the West End Fire Station to map plans for the bond issue campaign. Firemen made film presentations to local clubs and organizations. Meanwhile, the Fire Department Committee was making a list of specific items which the department needed. Fire Department Committee members are Councilmen Francis Van Loo, Perry W. Hawes Jr., Robert L. Debo Sr., Omer E. Stone and Montie Willcoxon. Drew Jablonsky drew up architectural plans for the new station, -and for two additional stations, which the city intends to build. One will be near U.S. 54 South, possibly on Hough Park Road; the other near Business 50 East. In addition to three new stations (with a pumper truck and equipment for each), plans called for a new ladder truck tanker truck, pumper truck foam generator, light plant radio unit and 3,000 feet of hose.
