City of Bayonne celebrates new state-of-the-art firehouse

Today, Bayonne unveiled their brand new state-of-the-art firehouse. The event had a huge turnout including dignitaries such as Mayor Jimmy Davis, Senator Robert Menendez, and Congressmen Albio Sires and Donald Payne, Jr. The 10,600 square foot facility is located on Chosin Few Avenue at the Peninsula on the Bayonne Harbor.  This facility is finally a permanent home for the fire department after temporarily working out of a trailer.  This amazing renovation was made possible by 3.5 million dollar grant received in 2009. The ceremony concluded with the firehouse’s own version of a “ribbon cutting” and a “push in” of one of the fire trucks.
