To The Daily Sun,
The Tilton-Northfield Fire District must, in the not so distant future, discontinue using Tilton's Center Street Fire Station (built in 1867 and 1895). Residents of Tilton and Northfield are invited by the TNFD Commissioners to attend a public hearing to be held at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 19, at the Winnisquam Regional High School Cafetorium. Options for new facilities will be outlined by the Facilities Committee, followed by time for comments and questions from those attending.
The TNFD Facilities Committee has been meeting approximately twice a month since the spring of 2015 to review the needs of our fire district professionals, their requests, and the needs of our two towns, now and decades into the future. The options to be presented to residents on Oct. 19 are the result of hours of discovery and discussion, keeping in mind the cost to taxpayers, the desire to preserve the excellent response times of our Fire Department, the large numbers of calls within our 41 square miles, the needs of our Fire Department professionals, and several other factors.
For those residents hoping to attend this public hearing, please consider touring the two stations in our district — on Center Street, Tilton, and on Park Street, Northfield. Our firefighters will be happy to show you around.
Tim Sattler, Chairman
Tilton-Northfield Fire & EMS District Facilities Committee
