March 8, 2017

                                                                     For Immediate Release


The Mayor and Town Council are pleased to announce that they have entered into an agreement to purchase the once Johnston Ambulance Service property located on Highway 70 West in Smithfield for $425,000. When the opportunity to purchase the property presented itself, the Council determined this would be an ideal location for a second Fire Station. The structure on site fits the needs of a Fire Station by providing apparatus bays as well as a space for operational duties. The property is perfectly located to provide coverage for the West Smithfield and for increased residential, commercial and industrial growth in the area. The Mayor and Town Council are committed to ensuring that all citizens and visitors have a safe place to live, work and play in the Town of Smithfield.
