Fire Department Task Force Open Forum - Posted 11/27/18

The Fire Department Task Force Study Committee invites all town residents to join the dialog at an open forum at the Groton Center Fire Station, 45 Farmers Row, on December 11, 2018 at 7:00pm.  During the FY19 budget process, Chief Steele McCurdy requested 4 full time firefighter/EMTs be added to the force to establish a fire department that is functionally staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  In response to this request, the Select Board appointed members to a Fire Department Task Force charged with engaging the community to establish a desired level of service, analyzing the costs and benefits of potential options and recommending a plan forward based on the findings.  The Task Force committee is impressed with Chief McCurdy’s competent management and his commitment to both efficiency and economy; the committee and the Chief support the continued deployment of a mix of On-Call and FT personnel.
