A visit to Coal Creek Fire and Rescue

We are always grateful to our men and women who are willing to serve their communities, be it through the military, the police force, firefighter task forces, etc.  Coal Creek Fire & Rescue is filled with these noble men and women who work each and every day to provide safety and security to the public. 

Located in New Richmond, Indiana, Coal Creek Fire & Rescue is not your typical fire station.  As a volunteer fire station, each of its individual firefighters give their time and resources to provide emergency services to their community.  So when the station applied for one of our grants, we were excited to be a part of such a worthy cause.
 The interior of the fire station is divided into three main areas, two of which house the office, bathrooms, utilities, and the kitchen/training room.  These two areas both received new high efficiency furnaces and condenser units, as well as some modifications to the existing ductwork.  The third area, the truck bay, had insulation put in to trim down the amount of air infiltration around overhead doors and beams.
We would like to thank Coal Creek Fire & Rescue for all of their sacrifice and hard work, as well as for allowing us to visit. We certainly hope that the new modifications will provide you with some much deserved comfort and relaxation.
Coal Creek Fire & Rescue received an Energy Efficiency & Conservation Block Grant (EECBG), a program of the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009.  EECBG is funded through the U.S. Department of Energy and is administered by the Indiana Office of Energy Development.
