STATION NEWS

 

 
 

DENNIS FIRE DEPARTMENT
The New Dennis Headquarters opened in spring 2000 at 833 Main street (Route 28) just west of Route 134. It is brick, 5 bays across, double deep, with a two story admin and living area on the right side of the large station. The new quarters houses the dispatch and all administrative offices as well as most of the department apparatus. The station has not been without its problems...mostly due to financial cuts and problems with workmanship...but they are dealing with them. The station sits immediately to the right of where the previous headquarters station sat before being torn down.
