Making progress on the new Harvard Fire Hall

Making progress on the new Harvard Fire Hall

The Harvard Fire Hall project is moving along quickly, as in the beginning of July the lot was empty, excluding the concrete groundwork and a small cement structure. As of Aug. 25, it’s clear how far the project has pushed forward, as a frame now covers the lot, as shown here looking to the east. The new fire hall will include three double bays with doors on the east and west sides to enter and exit; a meeting and training room, office, locker room for equipment and attire, a secure storage for medical supplies, and a mechanical area. A new fire hall will allow more room for the department’s trucks and ambulances; the building will be able to house 12 vehicles, as well as additional equipment.
