WRFD opens substation #3

Firefighter Dennis Kincaid with the Walnut Ridge Fire Department checks out hoses on the fire truck in the newly remodeled substation on East Main.

The citizens of Walnut Ridge now have three fully manned fire stations to protect and serve them. The city's fire station on East Main has been remodeled and is now open 24-hours a day, seven days a week, according to Walnut Ridge Fire Chief Alan Haskins.

The old Fireman's Hall had to be demolished in February of 2008, with the fire truck bay area left standing to provide the fire department with a substation on the east side of the railroad tracks.
