24 NORTH PROVIDENCE PUBLIC SAFETY COMPLEX SEPTEMBER 11-17, 2019 | NORTH PROVIDENCE EDITION "No issue with the strength of the floor," said Tikoian. "We had Briggs Engineering on site performing test- ing for all the concrete pours." The move to the new safety com- plex gives firefighters all the space they could ever want, says Silva, allowing the battalion chief from Station 2 to move in and leaving room for eight trucks, double the four trucks at the former safety complex. "There's more room, it's better organized, there's nothing in the base- ment," he said. Fire administrative offices include the office of the chief, Fire Prevention, Emergency Medical Services, the Division of Training and Safety, and Emergency Management. FIRE DEPT. From Page 22 BREEZE PHOTO BY ETHAN SHOREY The bays in FIRE DEPARTMENT side of the new North Providence Public Safety Complex feature all the latest technology for safety and functionality. CHIEF JOHN SILVA Just the fans on the ceilings in the fire bays are some of the most impres- sive contraptions one will find, said Silva, one of many upgrades here. "It's like a hurricane in here," he said. All the best and latest amenities are here, including a state-of-the-art decontamination room and comfort- able bunk rooms. Though the old safety complex wasn't terrible, said Silva, there were those daily annoyances fire- fighters lived with that are now all gone, including heat or air condi- tioning sometimes not working and sometimes moldy or dusty condi- tions.
