progress at an encouraging pace. The building is expected to open by the end of December or the first quarter of

sewer utilities to municipal services, roofing membrane on the building’s flat-roof portions and interior

built, face brick installation is in progress and drywall closure on the interiors will be completed by September.
Inspections for the building’s plumbing and electrical also recently began.
Throughout the fall, the construction team will continue to work on interior finishes and final equipment
“Construction is moving along rapidly,” said Fire Chief Robert Strahan.
Once completed, the Greenfield Fire Station will include administrative offices, an emergency operations
center, firefighter living quarters, bays to accommodate modern fire apparatus and a fire department museum.
Expenses for the new fire station are estimated at $21.7 million. The sum also includes the cost of the temporary
fire station on 53 Hope St. that became operational in September 2021. The Fire Department vacated its former
headquarters to make room for the new Greenfield Public Library on 412 Main St.
The Greenfield Fire Station will also meet sustainable energy goals to fit into local utility incentive programs.
The fire station will be fully electric, with propane only used for the kitchenette range, the apparatus bay and
standby generator fuel.
