The New Boston Fire Department is asking for your support to approve a bond (Article 5) in the amount of $2,750,000 at Town Voting Day on March 10, 2020, the 4th time this proposal is on the ballot.
This bond will fund the construction of a new 10,264 square feet, 5-bay Fire Station (including site work and soft costs) on town-owned land adjacent to the Post Office.
This Station provides ample room for our fire equipment and includes a much-needed 1,080 square feet training room, as well as office space for Emergency Management and department staff, including the Fire Chief (who currently works out of a home office) and Fire Inspector.
Although our current fire station has served us well, the structure is failing and the space isn’t sufficient to conduct operations safely and efficiently.
Along with the variety of structural and space challenges our station faces, the environmental impact of the current setup shouldn’t be ignored. There is no dedicated decontamination area in the current station. All five of the floor drains flow to the river.
Lack of Space
There is a pressing need for more storage and working space. Imagine 50+ men and women working, training and responding to calls in a building with one half bathroom, imagine all officers, firefighters and EMS personnel trying to conduct administrative business in office space the size of a linen closet. These factors have an impact on how we do our jobs.
