Upgrades to Fire Stations Underway, RFQ Issued for Headquarters

This week, the City of Medford issued a Request for Qualifications to begin the process of design feasibility for a new or renovated Headquarters for the Medford Fire Department. The RFQ seeks qualifications for an Owner’s Project Manager to guide the process, which we to begin in late summer or early fall 2021. This is the latest in a series of steps we have taken since fall 2020 to update all of the current fire department facilities throughout the City.

To date, upgrades have included:
