Workers are still putting the finishing touches on the new firehouse in Perry, and they're still waiting for the furniture to arrive.
And 13WMAZ's Jennifer Moulliet got an exclusive sneak peek inside.
"This first carpeted area will be their living room, chairs, sofa and television," pointed out Chief Joel Gray.
The house will also host a police office. Now, if you need to file a police report in Perry, you have to go all the way downtown.
Since many firefighters spend holidays at the firehouse, the new house will be large enough to accommodate a banquet table for their families.
Chief Gray brought the plans from his last station in Florida and tried to meet all of the fireman's needs, down to the wall color.
"The color scheme was important. The garnet brings in the whole Perry theme, and the green is a soothing color to bring you down after those hectic calls." explains Gray.
Each firefighter will have their own bed, desk and drawer while on their shift. Each cubicle has cut outs at the top to enhance the circulation of heating and air condition.
Each sectional also has its own light switch and fixture, but because of the station's design, when the sun is out you won't need it.
Now the firefighters stay fit by visiting a neighborhood gym, but the new house will have its own. "Between our fire gear, our air pack and our tools that we're carrying in our hands, our frame is carrying an additional 65 to 90 pounds." explains Gray.
The path from the dorms to the trucks will be sloped. At the current station it's a step. "So in the middle of the night or in a hurry you won't have to encounter steps," says Gray.
Another new feature, lights will automatically come on when an emergency call comes in. Five minutes after the truck leaves and the garage closes, they'll turn off.
The construction workers hope to have the driveway paved by the end of the week.
And Chief Joel Gray hopes to move his crew in by the end of April.
