FIRE STATION PLAN

 

EAST HARWICH FIRE STATION PROJECT
     Harwich approved construction of a new East Harwich Fire Station #2 at the May 7, 2018 Town Meeting.  The Station, estimated to cost $6.8 Million, will be located near the Route 137 & Route 39 intersection, facing Route 39. It is on the back of the same property as the current Station 2, built in 1976, and will allow for service to continue uninterrupted while construction is under way.
    The new station will be approximately 9,750 square feet with 3 drive through bays and living quarters for personnel.
    A committee formed in 2016 considered several options for renovating the present station. Additional apparatus space was needed and a major upgrade of the living space was also needed. The 5,500 sq ft Station built in 1976 has 2 apparatus bays, double deep. At one time it housed 1 engine, 1 ambulance, a forestry truck, and a boat.  In recent years, it housed 2 engines, 2 ambulances, and service vehicles in a cramped situation. When originally staffed, 2 personnel were assigned.  Current staffing is 3 per shift.  Additional room for future growth was needed.
    After considering the options and expenses, it was determined that a new station was the smartest choice and the town proceeded forward with plans.
    Ground was broken in July 2018.

The new station is being built on the same property as the present station
but will face Route 39 rather than Route 137.
