Orrington (ME) in New Fire Station

The Orrington Fire Department started operating out of the new 11,400-square-foot Orrington Public Safety Building, reports Bangor Daily News.

Construction costs still are being tabulated but are on target to be slightly under the $2.85 million budget for the building.

In addition to not meeting current building code standards, the cramped nature of the old building made it difficult to perform maintenance on modern-sized fire trucks.
