Watch August 4 Reveal of Lighthouse Point, Florida Fire Station on Lifetime Channel

Washington, D.C., July 25, 2017 – For almost 40 years, the fire station in Lighthouse Point, Florida didn't get a major renovation. That was before Designing Spaces and sponsors, including ICMA-RC, stepped in for a makeover as part of a "Spaces of Hope” special edition that airs August 4th on Lifetime TV (check local listings for airtimes.)

ICMA-RC has been providing Lighthouse Point firefighters and employees with retirement investments and services since 1978. When Designing Spaces approached ICMA-RC about co-sponsoring the program to improve the fire station, ICMA-RC agreed it was important for the firefighters, whose engine bears the inscription "Caring, Serving, Protecting", to get a modern and comfortable place to work, eat and catch up on their sleep between putting out fires and serving their community.

"Participating in the Designing Spaces makeover was an exciting way for ICMA-RC and others in the community to help the Lighthouse Point firefighters improve their firehouse, where they live and work," said ICMA-RC Senior Vice President, Catherine Leggett. "We thank the Lighthouse Point firefighters for their important service and hope the newly renovated fire house will help improve their daily routines and allow them to continue to bravely serve the community."

For a behind-the-scenes look at the fire station's exciting transformation, watch this video created by ICMA-RC on the set of Designing Spaces featuring David Donzella, the Lighthouse Point fire chief; Yolanda Flores, Lighthouse Point’s ICMA-RC Retirement Plan Specialist and ICMA-RC’s Catherine Leggett. Then tune in to Lifetime on August 4 to catch the big reveal!
