MAYNARD — The Maynard Fire Department is concluding 2022 with a move into its new headquarters, Chief Anthony Stowers announces.
On Monday, Nov. 28, Maynard firefighters officially relocated to their new facility at 30 Sudbury St., marking the culmination of a multi-year effort to build a modern, state-of-the-art facility that will ultimately empower the department to provide the highest possible level of service to the community.
Maynard Fire’s new headquarters is a 19,500-square-foot building that is more than twice the size of its existing station. It features a modern and efficient training area, an emergency operations center, and significantly more room for apparatus and equipment storage.
“We’ve all been anxiously awaiting the day when we could move into our new station, and we’re excited that day has finally arrived,” Chief Stowers said. “I’d like to once again thank our entire community for their support of — and investment in — our agency and members, who will be better equipped to respond to the community’s needs for generations to come.
While some final details of the construction process are yet to be completed, the facility is effectively done and ready to be put into service. The department will host a ribbon cutting in the near future that will be open to all in the Maynard community.
Construction on the station began in 2021 following a years-long effort that began in 2015.
