New Fire Station Opens

The Town of Maynard is thrilled to report that the Maynard Fire Department moved into the new Fire Station on Sudbury Street on Monday, Nov 28, 2022. A temporary Certificate of Occupancy was issued in the morning on Monday that allowed for the move to begin. It’s expected that a punch list of outstanding construction items will be addressed in the forthcoming weeks. Likewise, it may take some time for the Department to “settle” into their new home. The Maynard Fire Station Building Committee is excited to offer a public tour as soon as possible.

The new Fire Station replaces the “old” Fire Station built in 1954, and the new station’s construction completes a very long planning and advocacy process that was managed to the tiniest detail by Fire Chief Tony Stowers.

For a news brief, please read this article on the MFD website.
