MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – The City of Ishpeming Fire Department has temporarily moved into a new headquarters facility.
The Fire Department is now operating out of the city’s former Recycling Center on Carson Road, off of Lakeshore Drive in Ishpeming. Motorists are being advised to be aware of emergency vehicles exiting onto Lakeshore Drive.
The move is due in part to the Partridge Creek construction project near the current Fire Hall on Lake Street in the downtown area. Also, the city plans to reinforce the 100 year old Fire Hall floor at the Lake Street location in the next few months.
It is unknown when the firefighters will be back at the Fire Hall on Lake Street.
