Lakeville, CT - September 12, 2013

Salisbury Bank is pleased to announce its support for the expansion of the Ancram firehouse. The newly expanded firehouse is the culmination of a long planning and design process that began in 2009.

The new design incorporates the old firehouse with a new 7200 sq. ft. addition.  The addition will allow the firehouse to purchase trucks based on need not on size, and ultimately will make emergency response easier and quicker because each truck will now have its own bay. The new addition will also include training areas, offices, and additional work space. 

The single most important addition will be the two new bathrooms equipped with showers, which will enable the firehouse to serve as a shelter in times of Natural Emergencies. With its emergency power capabilities, kitchen facilities, refrigeration and freezer space, as well as communications, the firehouse will be well suited as a shelter. 

As the largest and most central building in Ancram, the firehouse plays a significant role in the character and personality of the entire town. It is a building that expresses the pride they take in their town, community, and extraordinary volunteer fire company. 

Salisbury Bank is funding the addition to the firehouse which will add three new bays for the fire trucks. 

“Salisbury Bank is excited to work with the Ancram Fire Company on such an important project” said Geoff Talcott, Chief Lending Officer of Salisbury Bank and Trust Company. 

“We believe that this addition will allow the Ancram Fire Company to operate and provide emergency services to the surrounding community in a much more effective and safe manner “ said Dave Boice, Chief of the Ancram Fire Company. “ The new space will also allow the Company to provide an enhanced level of community service, affording the ability to hold events with greater ease and additional parking.” 

Salisbury Bank is a full-service community bank headquartered in Lakeville, Connecticut and presently operates full service branches in Canaan, Lakeville, Salisbury and Sharon, Connecticut, South Egremont and Sheffield, Massachusetts as well as Dover Plains and Millerton, New York.  The Bank has been serving families and businesses for over 160 years and offers a full range of consumer and business banking products and services as well as trust and investment services.
