"It would be so nice if we could have our department," says Becky Pogue of the Dundee Fire Dept.
The Dundee Fire Department's sign is still there. So are a few signs of what happened back in June when a fire destroyed their equipment, trucks, and home.
"There wasn't any piece of equipment or any piece of personal property that hadn't been affected in some way or another," Pogue says. "It's all been very frustrating."
But she says there are signs of rebirth. The old headquarters was torn down. New trucks have been bought. They will soon to take bids for construction of a new station soon, even though the process hasn't been quick or easy.
"It's a very slow process working with the insurance," she says. "We had to do a lot of inventory of equipment. My poor husband had to go through the bunker gear, like, five times."
Even those they help are helping back.
"A lot of the people have stepped up and helped us when we did some of the salvaging down there," Pogue says. "We had some of the people there in town, some of the girls in the bank, and some of the people who live there in Dundee come down there and help us clean."
Firefighters are helping other departments and keeping up with training, waiting for the sign that Dundee's back. Pogue says she's not sure when exactly the new fire station will be ready.
