It is still several months away from completion, however. Newtown Volunteer Ambulance Corps member Stuart Rieve said that mid-August will “hopefully” see the project, which broke ground last July, primarily finished.

As of Wednesday, October 16, the concrete slab for the new construction’s living area had been poured, and the slab for the garage portion of the two-story, six-bay ambulance facility at Fairfield Hills will “hopefully” be poured in coming days.

By August 9, a three-man crew from Timber Ridge Tree Service of Newtown took down roughly 18 mature trees to clear the way for a new ambulance garage at Fairfield Hills. Spruce, maple, and willows trees — some choked with invasive barberry — fell as Bill Landgrebe, Erik Barrett, and Nate Greenfield limbed and chipped the freshly cut wood as part of the contract with Nosal Builders. They completed their part of ongoing site work to open up the area where a new six-bay, two-story ambulance garage will stand.
