New gear racks with plenty of room are located in the engine bay and an air filtration system is in place for removal of fumes when the engines are started.
Finally Mr. Dean showed us what is know as Phase II. The adjacent commercial building that used to be Drug Fair will converted to a community hall that should seat in the neighborhood of 400 people. A commercial kitchen is planned and possibly movable partitions in order to use smaller spaces when necessary. Mr Dean clearly showed his pride in the new facility and I would imagine that pride is common among the 60 active members, 16 Gold Badge members, 22 life members, and 2 cadets on the current role call of the department.
Indeed it is a fine building for the community it serves and I encourage anyone who happens by to stop in and take a look if possible. Thank you Mr. Dean for the time you took for us to tour your station. It was quite enjoyable and informative.
Congratulations also to the entire Pocomoke Volunteer Fire Company for this fine facility.
