What's Next?

Member Heather Feldman, May 10

In the 10 days since the bond failed, the District has first regrouped internally to assure our volunteer first responders that we will do what we can to ensure their safety in this building for the short term.

Why Not Split the Department?

Member Heather Feldman, April 27

In last week's paper a resident of Bedford Fire District suggested that instead of building a new firehouse, the department should instead add a second, smaller facility for our ambulances and split the department in two.

This option was explored and was rejected by both the District and the Department for two main reasons. First, in this scenario, the existing firehouse would still need to be substantially ... (Full Story)

No Caption Why Can't We Renovate The Current Firehouse?

Member Heather Feldman, April 14

We are land-locked in the Bedford Village Historic District.

• The firehouse is historic, as are the Bedford Free Library and the Lounsbery (Horse Connection) Building, and the Post Office, which wraps around the Lounsbery building and flanks our left rear.

We do not have room here to build an adequate station for our current operations, let alone future operations.

• Our lot is 1/3 of an acre, ... (Full Story & Photos)
