Fire Facility Spiffed Up, Thanks to 9/11 Volunteers

IMG_1632Dallas Fire-Rescue’s Dodd J. Miller Jr. Training and Maintenance Facility is looking a lot better, thanks to the efforts of 450 volunteers from about 45 local companies. The volunteers pitched in today to plant shrubs and trees, paint classrooms and replace ceiling tiles at the Dolphin Road facility in South Dallas, improving the environment for 1,700 firefighters. It was all part of the eighth annual 9/11 service event called Freedom Day, hosted by the Entrepreneurs Foundation of North Texas, part of the Communities Foundation of Texas. Among the volunteers was a hearty contingent from D Magazine including D Home Design and Style Editor Peggy Levinson (pictured), who wielded a paint roller with the best of them.
