Trucks filled with furniture and appliances have been offloading at the headquarters of Thomson Fire Rescue Service.
“It is like Christmas everyday,” said Fire Chief Rick Sewell, of the wares being delivered to makeover the fire station on McCommons Street.
In December, Firefighter Ron Cody won a “Fire House Makeover,” a sweepstakes valued at $15,000 to refurbish one of the city’s two fire departments.
California Casualty, a San Mateo, Calif.-based insurance company that rewards America’s firefighters for their dedication and tireless service, sponsored the sweepstakes.
