Sign Construction Begins

15 July 2015

After a bit of a wait, installation of our new sign began today. They are pouring the concrete today and it needs to set for a few days prior to the actual sign being installed. Keep your eyes peeled when passing by the station to keep tabs on the progress, and for messages from the Berkeley Hills Volunteers!

The Beginning of the End...

27 February 2015

Today marked the "beginning of the end" for the current sign for the Berkeley Hills Fire Company as Duquesne Light disconnected the power lines so that removal of the old sign could begin. We'll be replacing it with a new electronic sign in the weeks to come, though the new sign will probably not be installed (due to weather) until the end of March or early April. We will occasionally show the progress here with some pictures, so check back and watch while you're driving by the station!
