Wilton's new fire station will be ready in January
The Wilton Fire Station, located in the center of town, has been inadequate for some time, according to Selectman Daniel Donovan, and a $1.7 million project was approved by voters to expand the existing building this spring.
Firefighters have had to change into their gear behind or between parked fire trucks, there's no ventilation system in place to exhaust fumes when the trucks are running, and there is no place for firefighters to meet in the building, he said. The building also had asbestos and simply "wasn't safe" for the volunteers who serve the town.
The additional engineering work required to make the fix took a few weeks and slowed progress, Donovan said.
