Logan city celebrates new fire station's official opening

The residents of a Logan city neighborhood helped put a new fire station into service Monday night.

Station 72, located in the Woodruff neighborhood at 573 W. Golf Course Road, is the third fire station in city limits, and Fire Chief Jeff Peterson says he is thrilled with how it turned out.

Shirley Smart is the Woodruff CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) representative. Some time ago, she was asked to go door to door throughout the neighborhood and help inform the public about the coming fire station, which was still under construction at the time.

Peterson said the city committed to the construction of a new station six years ago and started collecting impact fees. Herald Journal
