MAYNARD — Chief Anthony Stowers and the Maynard Fire Department would like to invite residents and community members to the grand opening of the new Maynard Fire Station next month.
Saturday, Jan. 21, 2023, at 2 p.m.
Maynard Fire Department, 30 Sudbury St.
The public is invited to Maynard Fire Departments grand opening of the newly renovated station.
The grand opening will include a unique dedication ceremony. Department members will uncouple hoses to honor the new station, rather than cutting a ribbon.
The new headquarters is 19,500 square feet and features a modern training area, an emergency operations center, and more room for apparatus and equipment storage. The new station supports 21st century fire service, and includes numerous features to ensure the well-being of first responders. The station replaces the current headquarters on Summer Street, which exceeded its functional lifespan.
Residents and community members are encouraged to attend the grand opening and tour the new station. Refreshments will be served.
“We are excited to show our community our new and improved station,” Chief Stowers said. “I would like to thank the members of our Department for their patience during this construction and extend our appreciation to the entire community for their support – and investment – throughout the entire process. Our new station allows us more training opportunities, and more space. This allows out members to be better equipped to answer calls and keep our community safe.”
Construction on the station began in 2021 following an effort that began in 2015. The station opened for service Nov. 28, 2022.
