ASVAC's dilipadated, obsolete, and unsafe building as it stood earlier this month.
And ASVAC building as it looked today @ 10AM:
This is ASVAC's sole ambulance 50-B-1, or locally as 914. A 2001 Ford E-450/Lifeline Superliner, it is currently being housed in a temporary cage in a corner of the ASVAC property. When construction blocks the cage during the work day, it will be stored at the temporary firehouse. ASVAC is BLS, and their ALS is provided by Greenburgh PD*EMS Car 75 which responds from Dobbs Ferry Hospital.
Here, asbestos removal and demo prep work continue on Ardsley's old firehouse, and it is scheduled to come down within the next two weeks. Lots of memories, and a sad loss. Used to be the village hall, court and police station, where my father was an officer.
And finally, here is Ardsley Temporary firehouse. Work is complete, and this is the finished product. Functionally, in my opinion, it's nicer then the old firehouse and the location is very cool. It used to be the old Westchester Garage. It's on Saw Mill River Road/ Route 9A just north of Ashford Ave. The trucks fit better in here then the old firehouse above. They're expected to be here for 2 years at the most. I am planning on following this whole process photographically, so stay tuned. Congrats to both agencies, both projects have been long fought for!
