Town officials say a new building is needed to meet today’s fire service needs

BETHLEHEM — For about eight decades, the Bethlehem Fire Department has been housed in the center of town, in a structure behind town hall. For several generations, the fire station served its purpose, but town officials say a new building is needed to meet today’s fire service needs. During their meeting on Monday, Select Board members agreed to being the process of formally creating a committee to discuss what the fire department will need in a new facility and if it will be feasible to create a public safety building that could also house the police department, whose space in the town hall building is also becoming increasingly cramped.
