Medical company to donate $100k to Ga. dept.

By Sean Streitcher

ALBANY, Ga. — What started as an idea for the pharmaceutical company, MERCK, to donate an old building to the Albany Fire Department, for storing supplies and equipment, evolved into a $100,000 check to build a brand new facility.

"When we really started asking questions on what they needed, it seemed that the building that we would relocate would not serve their best needs," said Nancy Valaike the Director Global Facilities Management.

The Albany Fire department currently has supplies spread out, at each of its 11 fire stations, which can be very inconvenient for their technicians. The new building, which will be constructed at the fire departments training facility on Honeysuckle Drive, will provide a central location, allowing maintenance crews to fix, and get equipment back into use, quicker.
