Bernardston Town (MA) Voters to Consider Fire Station Expansion

A four-bay garage may be built on a lot of donated land next to the existing fire station, reports WMC 5.

Voters will need to approve up to $3 million in funding. The cost of the project is expected to be around $2.4 million based on previous discussions, but the $3 million figure will provide a buffer that could help cover unforeseen expenses.

The firefighters would also have more room for storing their equipment and have new shower facilities. The current station was built in the early 1970s, when the department would respond to 30 to 35 calls a year and when firefighting vehicles were smaller. Now, crews consistently responds to more than 300 calls per year.
