Public Safety Building

The new Ashland Public Safety Building is open.

The 42,000-square-foot facility opened March 14, 2023 at 12 Union St., providing a new combined home to the town's Police and Fire Departments.

Ashland began exploring the possibility of a public safety building in 2008, or even earlier, but for various reasons, nothing came of it until 2017.

On the fire side, the new building has bays large enough for modern fire apparatus, as well as separate areas to store equipment. There will also be larger living areas, separate eating areas as well as a report-writing area and meeting rooms.

The training room will hold 50 people, will be shared by both the Police and Fire Departments as well as a new, shared gym with new equipment.
