FIRE STATION PLAN

 

PLYMOUTH FIRE STATION 7 PROJECT

    The Town of Plymouth has 7 fire stations. The oldest functioning station is the North Plymouth Fire Station, Station 7, at 0 Spooner Street at the corner of Standish Ave.  It was built sometime around 1911 when the department still used horses. Volunteers of the day pulled a chemical wagon and ladder truck with horses.
    After many years of being cramped and out of date, Plymouth approved replacement of Station 7 and construction of a new fire station for North Plymouth in 2018. A 2.25 acre parcel of land on Hedge Road had previously be acquired by the town in 2017.
    The site preparation began in 2018 and construction on the new 3 bay, brick fire station got under way in 2019. The move in expected in 2020 would include an engine, brush truck, possibly a ladder truck, and an ambulance.

    The old Station 7 closed earlier than planned on November 6, 2019 when a portion of the apparatus floor failed. Apparatus and personnel were relocated to other facilities.

(Under Construction 2019)

The old North Plymouth Fire Station 7 was built over 107 years ago
in the days or horse drawn apparatus. Newer apparatus barely fits into
the old station.

Recently, Plymouth purchased a property not far from the 0 Spooner St
station. The new station will be at 15 Hedge Road just east of Court St.

The property has been cleared and preparations are under way to
build a proper new station. The new station is planned to be three
bays, double deep, allowing for an Engine, Brush Breaker, Ambulance,
a spare engine, and a future ladder truck.

The old Station 7 on Spooner St had to be closed November 6, 2019
when a structural failure made it unsafe to remain in the station.
Apparatus and personnel have been relocated temporarily until
the new station can be occupied.
