Brewster Fire Station

Brewster Construction has Begun 

Brewster began site preparation and construction of their new Fire Headquarters
in March 2017.  The new 22,000 square foot station is being built on land behind
the present fire station on Route 6A.

The new $13.5 Million station will have 5 drive thru bays and facilities for
personnel which were not designed for in the old station.  The project was
approved at the November 2015 meeting.

The present station was originally built in 1974 for both the Police and Fire Station.
The Police moved into their own facility in 2001.

As part of site prep, an annex building behind the station, which housed
an engine and other equipment was torn down.  Additional land had
to be cleared which has made it impossible for apparatus to come out
back doors of the station.  Some apparatus has been temporarily
relocated during construction.



The present Brewster fire station was built in 1974.

The "annex" building behind the fire station has been leveled.

This land behind the present station has been cleared for the new station.

The new access road to the station.  The old station is expected to remain and be utilized
by other Brewster town agencies.

The rear of the present station inaccessible during construction.

Hyannis Fire Station

Hyannis Ground Breaking May 8, 2017  

It took a number of years to get approval, develop plans, and prepare the site for
a new Hyannis Fire Headquarters.  Ground was broken on Monday May 8, 2017
as construction got under way on the new station which was approved at the April
2016 Special District meeting. The 33,000 square foot, $18.5 Million station will
be built on High School Road Ext., with the first phase being built next to the present
station. Once completed, the new section will be moved into and the old station will
be torn down to make room for the rest of the new station - additional bays.



New Fire Station Approved 2016

After several years of planning, with a number of failed votes, Hyannis Fire District
finally approved construction of a new Fire Headquarters at the April 9, 2016
special district meeting.

73% of voters approved the $18.5 Million project which will build a new
station on property next to the present station on High School Rd Ext.
The approximately 33,000 square foot station was significantly reduced
in size to achieve a budget that could get approved.

The present station was built in 1965 and was very spacious at the time.
As apparatus has increased in size and fulltime personnel have been added
to meet the ever increasing number of  responses each year, the station had
been outgrown for many years.

Design of the new station changed a number of times in order to achieve
the goal of maintaining continuous operation from the old station while
the new station is built.

Nantucket Fire Station

Nantucket Fire Department

Nantucket officials have decided to put off bidding for a new Fire Station
until Spring of 2018. The decision came in May 2017 with (hopes?)
of getting lower bids in 2018.
The original $15 Million approved in 2015 came
up short and an additional $2 Million was needed in 2016.


Nantucket voters approved approximately $15 Million
in April 2015 to construct a new fire station at the
Fairgrounds Road location of the Nantucket Police station.

The town had sought to fund a full public safety complex
including fire, police, and communications in 2008,
but funding was only approved for the police and radio
communications at that time.

The present Nantucket Fire Station was built in 1980
at Pleasant St & Sparks Ave. It replaced the old fire
station in the congested center of town.

Nantucket has grown significantly since the station
was built in 1980. Increased demands for service
and a station that has been full for years, and the
inability to expand on site have led to the need
to move off site and start new.

In addition to the central station, Nantucket also has two
small  unstaffed stations in Siasconset and Madaket.
The department has 5 personnel on a shift with a
minimum of 3 personnel on duty.
It operates 5 pumpers, 1 aerial, 2 tankers,
1 heavy rescue, 3 ambulances, and a number
of support units.

Onset Seeks New Station

Onset Fire Station  

The present Onset Fire District station was built around 1950 at 5 East  Central Ave.
in the center of Onset.  The station was built next to the old fire station dating back
to the early 1900's.  The two buildings are located on about 2.5 acres in the center
of Onset village in Wareham.  The station has 6 bays, but was not designed for
modern apparatus or operations.  Some apparatus must be kept outside
or in a tent on the property. The department's new 2015 Ladder truck
(which replaced the 43 year old 1972 ladder truck) does not fit in the station
and must be housed a couple miles away at the Water Department's building
on Sand Pond Road near where the proposed new station would be built.

The Proposed building would have room for all apparatus and facilities
required in new fire stations.  The estimated cost of $13.9 Million must first
be approved by voters at the May 15, 2017 District Meeting.



Land across from the Water Department on Sand Pond Rd where the proposed station
would be built if approved at the 2017 District meeting.


Onset Seeks New Headquarters

May 15, 2017 District Meeting

Sandwich Stations Approved

Police and Fire Stations Approved 

Sandwich has needed to upgrade its emergency services facilities for decades.
The police station and 3 fire stations are all inadequate having been built in
the 1970s.  A proposal to build a new Police and Fire Headquarters station
and build a new fire sub station was rejected in 2013.

The town went back to the drawing board.
On May 2, 2016 voters approved funding to move forward with a new Police
Station at Cotuit Road & Quaker Meetinghouse Road. 

They also approved building a new fire station on that site to replace the
1970s Forestdale Fire Station 3 which is currently on Route 130.

While no funds were approved for headquarters on Route 6A downtown,
funding was approved to make the East Sandwich Fire Station 2 ready
for staffing.  It was built in the early 1970s as essentially a garage with
no living quarters of facilities for staffing.

East Sandwich Station 2 to be renovated and made inhabitable for staffing.


Forestdale Station 3 to be replaced by a new station at Cotuit Road &
Quaker Meetinghouse Road with a new Police station.  The station was
first staffed in 1993 as that section of town has grown considerably.

The combination Fire and Police Headquarters originally proposed in
2013 which was rejected at the time.

Sandwich Station "19"

Sandwich Fire Department
The Sandwich Fire Department has moved their Foam Tanker 465
into a stall in Building 19 at the NRG Canal Power Plant.

The Foam Tanker had been stationed at East Sandwich Station 2
but insufficient staffing and a need for apparatus space
made the relocation to the power plant necessary.

The tanker was designed with the power plant in mind
many years ago. It was special called to the recent gasoline
tanker rollover and spill at the Bourne State Police rotary
in March 2015.

Wellfleet Police Station

Wellfleet Police Station Renovations  

Wellfleet voters approved approximately $7.5 Million to renovate the former
Wellfleet Fire & Police Station at 36 Gross Hill Road in November 2016.
In March 2017 work began on the building which will take advantage of
space formerly used by the fire department to increase space needed for
police operations.  The building had to be vacated during construction to
the Wellfleet PD moved up the street temporarily.  The construction is
expected to be completed around September 2018.

The original facility, a combined Police and Fire Station was first opened
in 1983.  The Fire Department outgrew the space and moved across the
street to a new Fire Station in 2009.

Chilmark Fire Dept

Chilmark Fire Department
The "Beetlebung Corner" Chilmark Fire Station was built in the 1930s
and has been added onto a couple times. It is little more than a garage
next to the Chilmark Town Hall.

A committee has been formed to look into the options for a new
public safety building that could house modern fire and ems apparatus
and possibly the police department.

See the recent article regarding this facility.

old Sagamore station which was located on the Sagamore rotary prior
to completion of the Sagamore Bridge Flyover project.

Oak Bluffs Moves In to
New Headquarters


Oak Bluffs Headquarters Opened

Video of Progress Nov 2015

Oak Bluffs Fire Station
The new Oak Bluffs Fire Station has been completed and the department
moved into the new $8.3 Million, 20,000+ square foot, 12 bay station
on December 6, 2015.  The station is located on the site of the previous
station at Wing Road and County Road. Construction took just 1 year
while the department worked out of the DPW garage and other temporary
quarters.  The station has been dedicated the Nelson W. Amaral Fire/EMS
Station in memory of the retired chief who served the department for
54 years, 34 as chief. The station is equipped with essential office,
living, classroom, and other space that the previous station lacked.


Voters in Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard approved the construction
of a new Fire Headquarters in 2014.

The present facility (shown above) will be torn down in the Fall of 2014
and apparatus will be relocated for about 1-1/2 years while a new fire
headquarters is built on the same site.




Oak Bluffs Fire Department
The Oak Bluffs Fire and EMS Department moved out of their
Wing Road & County Road headquarters in the late Fall of 2014.
Apparatus was relocated up the street to the DPW.
The space metal type former station was then torn down
to make room for a new facility (shown above).

The "old" station, built in the 1970s had already been added
onto several times and EMS crews were operating from a
trailer parked on property.

Oak Bluffs, much like Provincetown, at one time had
at least 4 small or single company fire stations to
protect the very congested community.
They were all combined into one in the 1970s.

Construction on the new building is expected to take about
a year with occupancy planned for late in 2015.

Voters approved a new building  in 2013.
