NEW BUFFALO — The Aug. 1 New Buffalo Township Public Safety Day was a fun way for children (and adults) to learn about water, fire and other types of safety; for families to pick up school supplies; and for everyone to get an up-close look at the recently opened Public Safety Building/Fire Station 2 (along with the new Rosenbauer tanker fire truck).

New Buffalo Township’s new Public Safety Building, located at 18959 U.S. 12, made its official debut with a June 22 ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by many of the police and fire personnel.

The facility is now being used by the Township Fire Department, with police from the Berrien County Sheriff’s Department’s New BUffalo Township and South Country patrols, and the Pokagon Tribal Police, expected to be fully moved in shortly after the Aug. 1 event.

“I’m overwhelmed with the turnout,” said Township Supervisor Michelle Heit.”So happy to see so many people come out today and get their school supplies, see the new facility. And have kids learn about fire safety and water safety and safety in general.”
