CARLISLE — The effort to build a new fire station for the Carlisle Fire Station came to fruition Saturday with the formal opening of the facility during a ribbon-cutting and dedication ceremony.

Located at the corner of King Kennedy Street and Fishdam Avenue in the Town of Carlisle, the fire station has been a long-time goal of the community according to Mayor Mary Ferguson-Glenn.

“Since 2006, the Carlisle Fire Board has been trying to get the funds to build this station,” Ferguson-Glenn said Tuesday morning. “The Carlisle Fire Station stands as an example as to what can be achieved when a community stands united for a common goal. It is a welcome addition.”

While the construction of the facility was a goal of the community which came together to support it, Ferguson-Glenn had special praise for Carlisle Fire Board Chairman Mike Spencer, former Union County supervisor Tommy Sinclair, and current Union County Supervisor Frank Hart and many others for the vital role they each played in securing funding for the project and getting it built.

Ferguson-Glenn said that the construction of the fire house will not only enhance the ability of the fire district to serve the community, but could also help local property owners financially. She said that the fire house has lowered the district’s ISO rating which in turn should lower insurance rates for homeowners and business owners in the community.
