ST. PETER, Minn. (KEYC) - St. Peter will soon be getting a new fire station.

The groundbreaking ceremony for the City’s new fire station took place this afternoon.

The Saint Peter Volunteer Fire Department was established in 1869.

The Fire Department is still an all-volunteer agency.

“it’s really going to help the firefighters who serve our community. We are serving them by providing for their needs,” explained St. Peter Mayor Shanon Nowell.

“We’ve been talking about this, I think, since before got on the department 30 years ago. It’s just something that needs to be done just for technology and training and to better help the community,” said St. Peter, Fire Chief Matt Ulman.

The new fire station is being constructed at the northwest corner of the Broadway Avenue/Sunrise Drive intersection.

“First of all, it’s gonna allow the men and women of the fire department to provide better service. People want to have fire safety .And this will be a state of the art facility that will provide benefits for everybody in town,” stated Senator Nick Frentz.

The St. Peter Fire Department not only extinguish fires.

They also actively engaged in public education, fire prevention, and rescue operations.
