Firefighters look to add classroom to MERIT
The MERIT Center sits well-worn after a number of training sessions in the Monroe Business and Industrial Park on the north side of the city. The facility is used to aid practical exercises during firefighter training and safety courses. Recently, Monroe Deputy Fire Chief Lane Heins began a campaign to raise $500,000 in funds for a new structure to be built on the 6-acre site to serve as a classroom, permanent bathrooms and extra garage space.
