STATION NEWS

 

 

WTC MEMORIAL

Chatham Fire Department
Ten years after 9/11, a number of communities have dedicated
memorials to remember those lost that day including 343 FDNY
 fire fighters. This memorial is in front of the Chatham HQ.

 


Chatham Fire & Police Departments share this facility.  The station was not built for the number of personnel currently assigned here.  Some discussions are taking place about what solutions may work for the future.  Previous plans suggested the possibility of a new police facility, leaving the extra space for the fire department.  More recent talk includes the possibility of a new South Chatham Station 2 to better serve the town with response times.  Jan 2006


Present South Chatham fire station on Route 28 is not staffed.
