Andover (MA) Fire Rescue Christens William T. Downs Fire Station

Dozens of Andover (MA) residents recently gathered to christen the William T. Downs Fire Station, reports

The new station, located at 161 Andover St., was dedicated to former Fire Chief and Selectman Downs. He was a firefighter for 31 years and was one of the first certified EMTs for the town. He served as chief from 1977 to 1986, then became a Select Board member for 12 years after his retirement, the report says.
