Rest assured, Point Boro residents: Point Pleasant Fire Department Station 75 was never "out of service" this weekend, as an electronic sign overlooking Route 88 suggested.
The fire company, which is headquartered at the foot of the Route 88 bridge across the Point Pleasant Canal, announced in a social media post on Saturday that the station "is not out of service and never was."
"The sign, however, is, as you can see in the
photo," the post said.
The center section is out, the announcement said, and sign displayed a message for a time that it was out of service. Parts are on order and "hopefully will
be up and running soon."
The station said it apologized for any confusion.
