News Council Approves Funding for the Northern College Fire Hall and Training Facility SHARE ON: Mackenzie Read, contributor, Tuesday, Feb. 14th, 2017 Photo Credit: Mackenzie Read Timmins City Council will be helping Northern College build a new fire hall and training facility. This comes with a $2-million bill to the city. Councillor Rick Dubeau says this is a bad idea because it adds to firefighter response times, potentially putting them in danger. Councillor Veronica Farrell says a brand new building, built with new cost efficient supplies, will be great for the city. //www.mytimminsnow.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/college-fire-hall-3.mp3 Farrell adds that it will be great to have the ambulance and fire services working from the same building. She says positives like a new training facility, outweigh the negative cost.
