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This new 40,300-SF combined police and fire station replaces the outdated and cramped 1960s building that was constructed for use as a town hall.

Located at the intersection of Route 1 and Route 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 side of the complex, the new station has enough bays for all of 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 of the cameras around town, as well as lockers, kitchenette, and restrooms so dispatchers don’t have to leave the area.
