Greenwich’s Central Fire House: Before, During and After

At Thursday’s Board of Selectmen meeting, First Selectman Peter Tesei said that on Dec 19th, Greenwich’s fire administration relocated from their temporary headquarters to the newly built central fire house at 15 Havemeyer place.

“This is the first time during my tenure that the fire administration has downtown,” Tesei said. “It’s been over a decade that they’ve been at Holly Hill. Chief Siecienski wishes to tip his helmet to the building construction, maintenance and IT for all their efforts to re-position their offices downtown.”

Piazza Inc. was the general contractor on the project. “Our company took great pride in this project,” said Piazza Inc. President John Piazza.”From including the stone and medallions from the original building to limestone and granite interior — we couldn’t be more pleased knowing that the fire department can serve from a facility they are proud of.”
