Bourne Fire Station

Bourne Fire Stations 2 & 4

BOURNE FIRE STATION
(Planning Stage)

The Town of Bourne has a committee looking into a solution to the
"south side" fire stations issue.  Currently the old Monument Beach
Fire Station #2 is a call station and is really not designed for larger
apparatus or staffing.  The Pocasset Fire Station #4 is also old and
barely sufficient for modern apparatus.  It has been staffed for years.
Both are in need of replacement.

The discussion to date has been on where land might be available
to build a single new fire station which would replace Stations 2 and 4.
A piece of land on County Road has had favorable recommendations
but the process has looked at several locations.

Bourne has 4 stations currently, two north of the canal both staffed, and
two south of the canal, 1 staffed. Traffic and geographical issues
require properly located and staffed stations on both sides of the canal to
cover the town.

(Approved 2019)

The Town of Carver approved the building a new Police Station.

CHILMARK FIRE STATION
(Planning Stage 2018)

The Town of Chilmark has been looking into options to update or replace
their humble fire station built in the 1930's.  Located next to Chilmark's
Town Hall, the station is little more than a garage.

For the past few years, the town has been looking at alternate sites
and options for a new station.

Update Nov 2018

NOTE
Chilmark approved funding for a new fire station in the Fall 2019.
The plan is to relocate apparatus from the Beatlebung Corner Station
for about a year and raze the old station so that a new Chilmark Fire
and Tri-Town Ambulance facility can be built.

DENNIS FIRE STATION 2
(Planning Stage 2019)

The Town of Dennis is looking at options to replaced the 4000 sq ft
62 year old fire station at 1015 Old Bass River Road on the Dennis
north side.  The station had been a call station for many years.
It began being staffed around 2013 and recently had staffing
increased.

Various alternative locations are being evaluated for a
possible new station in the future.

Falmouth Fire Station 4

WEST FALMOUTH WILL CLOSE IN 2020

The West Falmouth Fire Station, built in the 1930s, has been a "1 man station" for
many years.  Barely able to house a single modern pumper, the station has been
frequently closed in recent years when no apparatus that could fit in the station
was available.  The announcement that the station will be closed next year has
been made public.  The hope for a replacement station or combining the
West Falmouth and North Falmouth stations will be assessed.
October 2019

UPDATE
Falmouth is hiring personnel on a shift by shift basis to maintain (2) personnel
at Station 4 every day that can be filled.

NEW ONSET FIRE STATION
(Approved 2017 - Construction 2020)

The site of the new station has been cleared and prepared for future construction
as of Dec 2019.

The Onset Fire District voters approved a new fire station on May 15, 2017.
The proposed $13.9 M request was amended at the meeting approving only
$8 Million for the project, forcing the plans to go back to the drawing board.

The new station is planned for a plot near the water department facility
on Sand Pond Road north of Route 6. 

The present station has been in the heart of Onset village forever.
The 5 Central Ave station was built in 1950 next to the older
original station. The station has 6 bays, but is not well suited for
larger apparatus including the departments most recent ladder truck.

GROUND BROKEN
March 2020
Some f the foundations and site prep has been done and
the ceremonial "Groundbreaking" was held on March 11, 2020.
