Quincy's Fire Station #6 is once again up and running as of this morning.

A statement from Quincy Fire Chief Joe Henning reads that the station re-opened at 7:00 am on July 18 after closing in May of 2015 due to budget cuts.

"This is the culmination of an effort to re-open the station that included the hiring of two new firefighters to fill the positions that were vacated in the 2015-2016 budget year," Henning says.

The Quincy City Council approved the re-opening in April which included the moving of $200,000 in capital funds from the central station remodel and third ward to the fire department's general operating fund.

With the re-opening, Quincy once again has five stations available for emergency response.
