TELL US: What Are Your Thoughts on Fire Safety in Chelmsford?
From the new fire station to this weekend's fire, what are your thoughts when it comes to fires here in town?
Between several fires this week to other ongoing fire related topics like the Planning Board's site plan review of the new Fire Department headquarters on Jan. 23, fire is a big topic in town these days.
So today, we wanted to ask you: what are your thoughts on fire safety here in Chelmsford? Are people in town prepared for a big fire? Is the fire department doing a good job?
Sprinklers are mandated for buildings larger than 7,500 square feet, but would requiring them in smaller buildings make a difference or be a economic hardship?
What about your thoughts on the effectiveness of smoke detectors and other warning or prevention devices as well as educational efforts like the open house at the North Road Fire Station a few months ago? (pictured)
It's a big and continuing topic, so share your views with us in the comments.
Chelmsford Patch will be contacting local and state officials today to obtain more information on the Woodcrest Condominimum fire on late Saturday and early Sunday.
