Fire Chief Devon Wells was happy to receive the recognition.

“Thank you to everyone that helped with the design, planning, building, and occupying this amazing fire station,” said Wells, whose staff were actively involved in evaluating the best use of space and design elements. The award and accompanying article will be published in the November Fire Chief Magazine.
