The existing Sharon Fire and Police Stations are in disrepair and do not provide adequate space for modern emergency services departments. The Fire Station’s apparatus barely fit through the doors and there is no separate decontamination area. The Police Station has a leaking roof and the detention area does not meet health codes. Both buildings do not meet State and Federal Codes including ADA accessibility. Kaestle Boos completed a feasibility study and determined a new combined public safety facility was the most efficient and economical solution versus repair of the existing facilities. Kaestle Boos also evaluated several sites to determine the preferred location on the site of the existing Police Station. The police program includes secure prisoner processing and detention areas and secure evidence storage. Mitchell Associates Architects developed the firematic program which includes four drive-through apparatus bays, decon and SCBA areas, and storage. The public entrance, community/training room and dispatch/E-911 center will be shared between the two departments. Construction is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2015.
