Wells Public Safety Building

New 40,300-SF Combined Police and Fire Station

This new 40,300-SF combined police and fire station replaces the outdated and cramped 1960s building constructed for use as a town hall.

Located at the intersection of Route 1 and 109, the building provides better access and services, state-of-the-art dispatch facilities, and code-compliant and energy-efficient facilities.

The police station entrance has bulletproof glass and bulletproof sheetrock, along with secure hallways, as well as state-of-the-art evidence processing and storage rooms. On the fire station side of the complex, the new space has enough bays for all the engines, storage for supplies and equipment, bunk rooms, a day room with a fully equipped kitchen, offices, and a training mezzanine. The dispatch center includes six large screens displaying all the cameras around town, lockers, kitchenette, and restrooms, so dispatchers don’t have to leave the area.
