EAST GREENWICH — Back on Feb. 18 in front of a crowd of current and former firefighters, as well as citizens, East Greenwich Fire Chief Peter Henrikson made a presentation for a proposed new Station 1 at New England Institute of Technology that took just under two hours.
The process for the East Greenwich Fire District to make that possible dream into a reality, however, is going to take much more time than what was presented at the big campus on Division Rd. a couple weeks ago.
Last Thursday, the Fire Commission, attended by Mark Gee, Douglas Axelsen, William Daly, Stephen Bartlett and Mark Schwager, took its first steps into observing the 2.2 acres of land on the southwest corner of Cedar Ave. and Post Rd. slated to be sold by the State of Rhode Island by approving a motion brought forth by Bartlett to spend up to $15,000 to conduct due diligence on the proposed site.
