Fort Polk Fire Station officially opens


FORT POLK, La. — Command Sgt. Maj. Melissa A. Judkins, command sergeant major, U.S. Army Installation Management Command, once called it a “Taj Mahal of a fire station,” but the men and women who spend most of their time there simply call it home.

The new Fort Polk Fire Station 1, bldg 001, located on the corner of Louisiana and Mississippi avenues, was officially opened with a ribboncutting ceremony April 12. Several members of the firefighting and law enforcement community, Directorate of Public Works, Army Corps of Engineers and Ross Group Construction Corporation, as well as the Joint Readiness Training Center and Fort Polk command group, attended the event.
