By Emilie Hackett, Special to the Record – Lennoxville’s new fire station, at 3175 College Street, was inaugurated after months of construction. Sherbrooke mayor Steve Lussier, Public safety committee president Danielle Berthold, Lennoxville borough president Claude Charron and Fire protection services director Stéphane Simoneau participated in the ribbon-cutting ceremony. Started in September of 2018, there are only a few finishing touches left to the construction of Sherbrooke’s fire hall number six. It is however up and running, having received their first call last week at Provigo Robert Lafond as a car burst into flames and burnt another in the parking lot. The $3,270,000 investment is one that is worthwhile, according to Lussier. “We are happy to be able to offer this new fire station to the population of the Lennoxville borough. There will be four permanent firefighters, which will ensure better services for Lennoxville residents. We will achieve a five-minute response time for four firefighters and a ten-minute response time for 10 firefighters. This respects the norms ­imposed by the Ministry of Public Security,” he said. “I also want to thank those who often use College Street for their patience during this construction project.” See full story in the Monday, June 10 edition of The Record.
