A dedication of the new $6.7 million North Conway (NH) station is planned for 10 a.m. Saturday, reports conwaydailysun.com, with Gov. Chris Sununu and U.S. Sen. Maggie Hassan, among others, expected to be in attendance.
The project began last July and has been completed on budget and ahead of schedule. The new station is located at 70 Norcross Cir. in North Conway Village.
Saturday’s agenda includes:
• The National Anthem and Pledge of Allegiance
• Blessing by Pastor Sean Dunker-Bendigo.
An official will then give a history of the project, followed by the official dedication. Tours of the station will be available following the dedication, through 2 p.m.
The station has been designed to have a “dirty” holding area on one side of the structure, away from the office. The lower level has a small conference room and office for the chief as well as support spaces for accessing the vehicle bays. The station also has a hose tower on the northern end. Above the offices is a living area for firefighters, with a training/common room, bunk room, kitchen space, and an atrium over the rescue vehicle bay. Voters in 2020 approved a 20-year bond for the fire station by a vote of 45-3.
The old station stood since 1962.
