FIRE STATION PLAN

 

ONSET FIRE STATION PROJECT
     Onset Fire District has had a fire station in the center of the village for over 100 years.
     The old original station was built in the early 1900s. It was replaced by the current station in the 1970s. Apparatus ran out the front and rear of the station with 3 bays each side and office space in between, as well as dispatch Fire Alarm. As apparatus of the 1970s began to be replaced, it was clear that a new facility was needed.
     In 2017, Onset Fire District voters approved construction of a new station. At the meeting, a motion cut the approved budget by nearly half to about $8 Million.  Leadership had to go back to the drawing board to find ways to make it possible to build a station. The property owned by the district north of Route 6 and near the Water Department was chosen after attempts to do some land swaps in the village center failed to get approval. 
    The land was cleared and prepared in 2019.

PLANNING

| Fire Station Plan | Latest Update | Construction Progress | Preparation | Planning | Older Facility |

 

The planning to build a new Onset Fire Station began and went to District meeting
in 2017.  The vote passed, but the budget was nearly cut in half resulting in a need
to redo much of what had been planned. The new station would move out of Onset
center to a property north of Route 6
