David Messercola, left, who headed the committee of fire chiefs that worked “in lockstep” on getting the new training tower, talks to the town and county officials who gathered for a ribbon-cutting ceremony on May 16. On May 21, the Guilderland town Board agreed to a land swap with the Northeastern Industrial Park. The million-dollar training tower for firefighters is being built on a roughly five-acre property that the town leases from the park. Once the swap is complete, the town will own the land on which the tower stands.
