With the modulars having been delivered last week, this week and the early part of next week is all about getting them readied for the firefighters to move in. Because the utilities were identified by City engineers as being located to the left of the Fire Station (looking from Bayshore Blvd.), it was decided that the best spot for the modulars would be on that left side (instead of the right side where the staging trailer was set up).
The Brisbane Fire Station got its start as a volunteer station back in 1932, so it is only fitting that the labor and materials used for the modular be local to Brisbane. For instance, the men below are from Stellar Plumbing, Inc. who recently moved their offices to 23 San Bruno Ave. Abner, Daryl, and owner Lon Carter all live in town. So it's no wonder that if there are items such as recycled wood from a recently remodeled house in Brisbane, they know about it and are using it. In the left-hand picture below, Lon is drilling in a ledger board (the recycled wood mentioned earlier) which the shower will mount on and be screwed into from above. In the right-hand picture, Daryl and Abner help Lon place the shower.
And, a plus is that Stellar Plumbing has made a lot of purchases for this Fire Station project at none other than at Brisbane Hardware. Thank you for your hard work in helping give our firefighters a place to call "home" for now.
