Fire Station moving and employees moving up

Lawton_The Lawton Fire Department is moving equipment and moving quite a few of its people up in rank.  Captain Ricky Prince of Station 4 is one of those recently promoted.  The 24-year-veteran says it's all to better serve the community.

"We are remodeling Station 4 at this time to accommodate the promotions and to upgrade," said Prince, "This station has been here since 1957."  Prince is one of 3 new captains.  He says they've also moved the Department's only rescue apparatus to Fire Station Number 4 because it will be more centrally located.  He says it should reduce response time.   Twelve department employees were promoted.
