Fire training site survey



BAR HARBOR — An agreement has been reached between two local boards that allows for a study of a piece of Mount Desert Island High School property to see if it is suitable for building an island-wide fire training facility.

The high school trustees and the board of the Acadia-area League of Towns have signed a memorandum of understanding under which the league will pay the engineering firm CES $2,000 to conduct tests, such as soil and groundwater analyses and a wetlands survey.

The property that the island’s four fire chiefs have identified as a potential location for a firefighter training facility is between the high school’s baseball field and Eagle Lake Road.
