WAKEFIELD — Superintendent David DiBarri is pleased to announce that Northeast Metro Tech students will be helping to renovate the Melrose Fire Department’s headquarters station over the next few weeks.

Students from the HVAC, Carpentry, Drafting, Plumbing and Electrical shops will all participate as students work to renovate the station’s kitchen area, hallways, fire alarm office, chief’s office and doors. 

Work performed by students will include renovating the station’s kitchen area, repairing holes in the subfloor and replacing tiles, building new cabinets and counters, and hanging new ceiling tiles and lighting. 

“This project will enable our students to use the skills they’ve learned in their shops to benefit the community and the Melrose Fire Department,” said Ward Hamilton, Melrose’s representative on the Northeast Metro Tech School Committee. “I’m pleased to see our students participating in hands-on learning that benefits our sending communities.”
