The Monson Fire Department needs your help

The Fire Department’s current building is in need of some major repairs and renovations. They have spent hundreds of hours working with the Town and Tecton Architects to develop a cost-effective solution which will have at least a 35-year lifespan.

The town needs you to VOTE YES in favor of the Building Renovation Project at the Town Meeting on May 8th, 2023

We need to support the people who support us. Otherwise, good firefighters and EMT’s will seek employment elsewhere and the services we enjoy today will be greatly impaired.
