Cape blessed with new facilities

Wednesday, March 7, 2018

Within the past year, our Cape Girardeau community has witnessed very remarkable events that few communities our size have probably ever witnessed.

* On April 14, 2017 we had the blessing and unveiling of six new state-of-the-art fire trucks.

* On Dec. 1, 2017 we had the dedication of our new state of the art Fire Station No. 4 and also the dedication of the new Annex Building at Fire Station No. 2.

On March 2 we had the ribbon cutting ceremony for our new state-of-the-art police department building and adjoining municipal courtroom.

God has blessed Cape Girardeau with all these wonderful additions to provide optimum emergency, protective services for those in Cape and our surrounding area.

We thank God for the vision, character, commitment, chemistry, communication and co-operation of our city leaders, our fire chief Rick Ennis and police chief Wes Blair, our professional, well trained and dedicated firefighters and law enforcement men and women, our civilian support staff and the citizens of our community who have made these magnificent additions possible.

Our new police headquarters and Fire Station No. 4 are awesome. They are outstanding. They were well planned. They are built to serve us for years to come. You and I are blessed to live in the Cape community. Thank God today for these blessings. Ask God to bless all those who serve us so well in Cape. Continue to provide Cape with your whole-hearted support. What a great past year for Cape!
