STATION NEWS

 

 
 

Plymouth Station 5 Shutdown

Plymouth Fire Department has recently shut down the Manomet Fire Station #5.
The closing is due to recent changes in the minimum manning and budget problems in the town.  Plymouth has 7 fire stations covering about 96 square miles and a population of over 50,000.  The shut down is posted as "temporary" but there are concerns that if/when the Manomet station reopens, one of the other stations would be closed.
With the shutdown, response districts have been adjusted and apparatus reassigned to other stations.  For more info....

Plymouth Fire Department Dispatch

Plymouth Fire Department recently upgraded its radios, antenna, and related
communications equipment.  A new Motorola Centracom Gold Elite system
enables dispatching with click of a mouse on computer screen.

The communication room is in the right front of Plym HQ.

 

Plymouth Fire Department New Station #3


New Plymouth Sta.3 was to have opened July 2002.
Not yet occupied as of Sept 5, 2002.

Plymouth's New Station 3 - Pine Hills Station - located on a new road just off of Exit 3 east of Route 3 is nearly complete.  It looks very much like the recently built Cedarville Station #6.  The station will probably not be occupied for a while however, since the road into it and the area around it are  still under construction.  This will bring Plymouth to 7 stations.  Dec 3, 2001.
