The Winkler Fire Department is getting advice from a fire station design consultant in the United States.

Don Collins, who was born into a fire service family, has been helping design fire stations for over 25 years.

Collins has met with the Winkler department and the city to see how firefighters could do their jobs better.

He says the Winkler Fire Department has outgrown its current facility.

Collins has visited over 200 fire stations in the U.S. and Canada and helps them avoid some of the mistakes other fire departments have made.
