Station 16 Dedication

From the Salisbury Fire Department web site:

The Salisbury Fire Department will be holding a formal dedication ceremony of our new Fire Station 16 and Fire Headquarters facilities located at 325 Cypress Street, on Saturday, August, 23rd at 10 am. We will have a welcome address from Mayor Barrie Parsons Tilghman, and remarks from Chief David B. See.

The keynote speaker for the ceremony will be Mr. Gregory Cade, the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Assistant Administrator for the U.S. Fire Administration.

Representatives of the Masonic Lodges of Maryland will be on hand to help with a special cornerstone ceremony. Traditional fire department ribbon cutting displays will take place, with our usual twist. An open house will immediately follow the ceremony. The open house will feature demonstrations and static displays by the Salisbury Fire Department Special Operations Team, light refreshments provided by the Salisbury Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary, and continuous tours for the duration of the event.

Numerous agencies will have displays during the open house, also. The Maryland State Police “Convincer” will be on hand for demos, weather permitting. Overflow parking will be available in the shopping center lot across the street from Fire Station 16. The public is invited to this free, family event. If you should have any questions concerning this event, please contact Firefighter/Paramedic Melissa L. Brown, PIO, at 443-235-7134
