Residents can tour Norwalk's fire station and review a study on changes needed in the department at an open house from 10 a.m. until noon Saturday.

Chief Doug Coletta and Mayor Sue Lesch both will be available to talk to residents during the open house.

"We often times open up the station for tours during Fire Prevention Week," Coletta said. "This year is a special opportunity for residents to tour, given the recent discussions about the need for a new fire station."

Norwalk officials have been talking about building a new fire station for many years and it is one of the goals outlined in the city's comprehensive plan. The city recently commissioned a location and staffing study to review current and projected fire department needs.

"We invite the public to come and take a look," Lesch said. "This open house is an opportunity for residents to see the station with all its challenges up close. We will also be very happy to share the results of our recent study and to hear from residents."
