GRAND BLANC, Mich. – Friday was the opening day for the city of Grand Blanc's fire station.
The city just separated from the township and formed its own department.
Many have questioned, if the city has the resources to be reliable.
The chief assures the community, they do.
"I think the residents should understand that they all are professional firefighters there, very experienced. We do have some new recruits coming into the fire department which is also exciting," said Dennis Smith, Grand Blanc Fire Chief.
Smith announced yesterday, an enhanced mutual aid agreement with the township for all Grand Blanc community schools.
Which means, both departments will respond to any calls from the schools.
