Hartford’s new Public Safety Complex on High Street reached a milestone Monday with the “topping off” ceremony for the $77 million dollar project. Mayor Pedro Segarra, City Council members, Police, Fire and Emergency Services workers and other city officials were on hand.

The building, to be powered by fuel cell energy, will house police, fire and emergency services, including the 9-1-1 dispatch center.

A signed beam with an American flag, and an evergreen tree was lifted into place as part of the ceremony. The beam symbolizes patriotism, the American Dream, and federal funds for the project. The tree symbolizes that the construction has reached its height, that there have been no on-the-job fatalities, and good luck for the building’s future occupants.
