LUDINGTON — The Ludington Fire Department, along with Mayor Kaye Holman, members of City Council, City Manager John Shay, and other members of the community, formally broke ground on the city’s new fire station on Wednesday, June 13, 2018. The $1.2 million station will be located behind Lakeshore Resource Network, 920 E. Tinkham Ave.

Fire Chief Jerry Funk spoked after Pastor Henrik Lidman of Prayer & Praise Assembly of God church blessed the upcoming construction project. Funk credited Assistant Chief Ron Jabrocki, Capt. John Henderson, and firefighter Andy Larr for being on the building committee. He also credited Shay for all his work the past eight years in working to build a new station. The present station, located at the corner of Robert and Loomis streets, has been used as a station for over 40 years. The building itself is likely over 60 years old, Funk has told MCP.

Funk said the location of the new station will likely result in quicker response times since many of the firefighters live on the north side of town.
