Fire Chief Alan Haskins said the department plans to use this room regularly for meetings and classes.
Walnut Ridge firemen are working hard to complete the alterations to their new fire station.

The building is now fully operational and is expected be completed by late October. Landscaping and some outside painting, along with the installation of flags, are expected to add finishing touches.
