Wellfleet Fire Station Plans
Dec 2007

Wellfleet shares its fire headquarters with the Wellfleet Police Dept.
The fire department has the basement area and unfortunately, there is
little to no room for expansion.

Adjacent to the present fire station is a couple acres of land with the "Gutsy Bender's"
Restaurant located on it.  Plans are being made to acquire this property for a new
fire headquarters station.  March 2006


Wellfleet Headquarters
The future new Wellfleet Fire Headquarters approved at the Dec 3, 2007
town meeting will be located across the street from the present fire/police
station. Site preparation has already begun and the official ground
breaking ceremony was held at noon on Thursday March 6, 2008.
The ceremony was attended by representatives from Wellfleet and
many of the other Cape departments on a mild, sunny day.

 



Wellfleet Fire Station Plans


 


The South Wellfleet Fire Station on Route 6 was closed in the Fall of 2002.  Response to the station was not reliable.  The one engine assigned there, Engine 94, has been relocated to the Wellfleet Headquarters.
