My name is Matthew Miller. I am the owner and chief of the Portage Lego Fire Department. I have been building and playing with lego's for as long as I can remember. I started my first lego fire department back in 1999 which at the time was named New Portage Lego Fire Department. Then 4 years ago I created a new department called, Portage Lego Fire Department. The departments roots go back to 1923 when one station was built to give emergency services to the small town of portage. As time goes on more stations were built, more apparatus ordered and replaced etc etc. As time went on the small town of portage grew into a city which now consist of 6 fire stations with a total of 16 apparatus.
