– A quick follow-up to a business brief published last week

Last week, the City of Decatur Fire Department partnered with the local Corey Real Estate group to perform live training exercises at an in-town property.

Corey Real Estate recently purchased the decaying home on Sycamore Drive, which is set to be demolished later this year. Before it’s torn down, though, the firefighters took an opportunity to practice their skills in real time.

Ted Baltrusaitis, owner of Century Craft Homes, is the builder of record on the permit. He was contacted by Gary Menard, the battalion chief, and he worked with Menard to schedule the three days of training.

“I would like to add how communicative and professional Mr. Menard was during the  process of coordinating the training of the firefighter, around times that I had subcontractors installing erosion control, tree protection, construction entrance and utility disconnections in preparation for the required pre-demo inspections be the city of Decatur,” Baltrusaitis said. “I will be breaking ground on the new custom home for Alan Corey on the property late this summer.”
