ACTON — Fire Chief Robert Hart, Town Manager John S. Mangiaratti, and the Town of Acton invite the community to attend the official opening of the new North Acton Fire Station.
Friday, June 10 from 9-11 a.m.
North Acton Fire Station, 68 Harris St.
The Acton Fire Department is pleased to invite the community to attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new North Acton Fire Station, which officially went into service on Feb. 28.
Speakers will include Chief Hart, Town Manager Mangiaratti, Select Board Chair Dean Charter, and State Sen. James Eldridge.
Guided tours will be available following the ceremony. Refreshments will be available.
Attendees may write a message to be included in a time capsule, which will be reopened in 50 years.
The new station, the first to be built in the town since 1961, contains equipment to keep first responders safe and healthy. It features a new decontamination washer, washer extractor, and drying cabinet, all of which function to clean gear of toxins and pollutants that can be harmful to first responders’ overall health and wellness.
The station was also designed to be energy efficient, with the use of geothermal heating and cooling and solar energy that will serve to decrease energy needs and reduce the cost to taxpayers.
Kaestle Boos Associates Inc. designed the station. Huffer Construction Corp. served as General Contractor. PMA Consultants served as Owner’s Project Manager.
