Habitat for Humanity Dedicating Home to Former County Fire Chief Tibbetts

The 170th house to be built by the Greater Albuquerque Habitat for Humanity will be dedicated to former Sandoval County Fire Chief Jon Tibbetts.

Groundbreaking for the house at 6432 Trujillo Rd, SW in Albuquerque is scheduled for this Saturday, June 1, 8:30am. This project is the result of partnership between Presbyterian Healthcare Services and the Sandoval County, Rio Rancho and Corrales Fire Departments.

Jon Tibbetts was killed last year in the line of duty while serving as the Sandoval County Fire Chief. He also worked for Albuquerque Ambulance Services, a division of Presbyterian, for more than 18 years before joining the Sandoval County Fire Department.

The 3-bedroom, 2-bath home being built in Chief Tibbetts’ honor house should be ready for occupancy by the end of September 2013. At that time, a qualified Habitat Partner Family will be welcomed into the home with a ribbon cutting celebration.
