MEDNA – The Medina Fire Hall at the corner of Park Avenue and Main Street was recently given a new old-time fire hall look. Firefighters painted the doors and trim red. They were green and white.
John Lang, the father of firefighter Ashton Lang, created the door numbers. Ashton was a full-time Medina firefighter. He recently joined the Gates Fire District.
His father designs and fabricates metal art and sculptures. The Number 40 represents Medina’s ladder truck.
The Number 11 represents the primary engine for the fire department.
“It was a pleasure working with the Village of Medina Fire Department on this project. This type of functional art is very rewarding,” Lang said. “It was a great way for me to say, ‘Thank you for your service’.”
The red doors debuted in September. Firefighters also refurbished the bench by the red doors.
In addition, a historic hose cart was fixed last week with firefighter Chris Seefeldt taken the lead in having it sanded and rebuilt.
