   The Grenada Fire Department celebrated the opening of a new station Wednesday with a ribbon-cutting and fish fry.
   Station Four is now operational, and it will reestablish a fire department presence in the air industrial park.
   Two years ago firefighters moved out of their station in the industrial park because the building was in disrepair. They moved into Station Two, which is located behind Wendy’s.
Department personnel, along with city and county officials officially unveiled the new 4,800-square-foot facility.
   “This is the culmination of a lot of hard work and planning,” said former Fire Chief Herman Simpson, who was honored at the ribbon-cutting for his 30 years of service to the department.
The department chose buy an existing building at 300 Air Industrial Park Rd., rather than construct a new one.
