    JVS Students Unveil a New Fire Station at Elyria Safety Town
    Elyria Fire Chief, Richard Benton, makes remarks about the Elyria Fire Station 3 built by JVS carpentry students

    May 21, 2018 -- Elyria Parks and Recreation, the Elyria Fire Department, Lorain County JVS, and RGI, a creative design-build company from North Ridgeville, joined forces to assist in the design and construction of a new fire station built for Safety Town located at Northwood Middle School.

    The Lorain County JVS junior carpentry students presented their work to members of the Elyria Parks and Recreation and the Elyria Fire Department on Wednesday, May 16th.  Special guests included; Elyria Mayor Holly Brinda, Elyria Fire Chief Richard Benton, and JVS Superintendent Dr. Glenn Faircloth.

    Chief Benton was at a loss for words when the students unveiled the fire station. “I expected something nice, but I did not expect something as nice as this, and I appreciate the time you put into it.”

    “This fire station will remind the kids at Safety Town to remember the safety tips that they learned here,” Chief Benton continued. “To the students who built it, you will be able to tell your kids one day when they come to Safety Town that you were responsible for making it.”

    The carpentry students took on the challenge to design and build a replica of the actual Elyria Fire Station 3. RGI lent their professional knowledge and equipment to help the students render their ideas into designs and drawings. The students built the main structure of the Safety Town fire station in their JVS carpentry lab and built the entry cupola of the fire station, the most complex component of the building with its pyramid-like shape, at RGI with the guidance and supervision of RGI’s experienced carpenters.
