STATION NEWS

 

 
 

Tisbury Fire Station

Tisbury (Vineyard Haven) is planning a new public safety fire-ems station.
The new station would replace the old fire headquarters that is on a small lot and
is not large enough for modern apparatus.
June 2004
Update
Tisbury anticipates selection of a site for the new facility in the Spring of 2006.
The site will be out of town off State Road, although the specific location
has not been identified.  Once the site is selected, funding of design plans
would follow, and then funding for construction would have to follow.
The facility would house the fire department and ems vehicles.
The present station on Beach Road has no room for modern apparatus
and has very limited facilities or parking.  Additionally, its location
on one of the most congested roads in town during the busy summer
makes an alternate site a necessity.
