THE LATEST FIRE EMS POLICE STATIONS CHANGES
 

 

Barnstable Fire Dept

BARNSTABLE FIRE STATION
The Barnstable Fire Station at 3249 Main Street was built in 1935.
Over the years it was added onto several times.
As the department has continued to grow, the reality that there
is simply no room to expand at the current location became obvious.

A Building Needs committee was established in 2023 to look
at options. In February 2024, an announcement reported that
the department will bring forward a proposal to the voters in
the spring of 2024 to build a new fire station on Phinneys Lane
where the Water Department office is currently, and essentially
trade places with the Water Department.

Much of the increased call volume has been coming from
the Industrial Park area and additional growth is expected.
A move, in addition to gaining need space for apparatus and
personnel, would also move operations closer to the middle
of the response area.

Fire & Police Station Projects

Several Fire & Police Station Projects Ahead  
 

Watch for progress on the following in 2023-2024
 

 
BOURNE FIRE
     The Town of Bourne has had (4) Fire Stations for many years.

     Two stations on the North side of the Cape Cod Canal and two stations on the South side of the Canal.

     STATION 1 - The Buzzards Bay Fire Station on Main Street always served as the Headquarters, with administrative offices, dispatch, and the major pieces of apparatus.

     In the 1980s or early 1990s, dispatch went to the Bourne Police. In 1996, the Barnstable Sheriff's Department took over dispatching Bourne and continues to today.

     In 2017, the Bourne Headquarters offices moved to the Sagamore Fire Station 3, which is the largest, newest facility that could support Headquarters functions.

     STATION 2 - The Monument Beach Fire Station 2 on Thomas Philbrick Road is the smallest and oldest facility (100+ years old). At one time, staffed by a House Man who lived in the station. For many years, since the 1970s, an active Call Station.

     In 2022, the old Monument Beach Station 2 was called upon to become a staffed station when it had to serve as the "south side station" when the Pocasset Station 4 had to suddenly be closed due to structural and safety reasons.

     A mobile trailer was placed next to the Mo Beach Station (for living quarters) and apparatus, including an Ambulance was relocated from Station 4 to Station 2. The long time  Station 2, was reassigned as Station 4 (for dispatch and operational purposes).

     STATION 3 - The Sagamore Fire Station 3 on Meetinghouse Lane was built in 2006. It was part of the Sagamore Bridge "fly over" project that replaced the Sagamore Rotary, which is where the previous Sagamore Fire Station was located.

     The new station was a much larger, multi-floor, multi-bay fire station. In 2017, the department decided to move Headquarters into the larger facility. Increased office space, an elevator, and training space were some of the advantages.

     STATION 4 - The Pocasset Fire Station 4, on Barlows Landing Road, was built i 1947. At the time, a 2 bay, 2 story wood station. In the 1970s, a third bay was added allowing for an ambulance to be assigned. The station became staffed in the 1980s and was the primary station south of the Canal for many years.

     There has long been a need to modernize, renovate, or replace the south side station (s) to house larger apparatus, staffing, etc.  Station 4 has always been in a high water table area and had a wet basement (sump pump) issue.

     As early as 2018, and in reality way before, talk of doing "something" about the situation periodically came up. In 2018 a Study Committee was established to look at options. The committee looked at various sites for a new fire station, and whether a single station could serve the south side adequately. Progress was slow and stalled off and on.

     In the Fall of 2021, the apparatus floor in the Pocasset Station was deemed unsafe and the station was abruptly and unexpectedly forced to close. With Winter coming, it created a challenge as to how to serve the large area south of the Canal, as well as the rest of the town. The quick solution was to utilize the Monument Beach Station to house apparatus and use a mobile home trailer to support the crew. The move was made.

     The (3) person crew for the Pocasset Station, relocated to Monument Beach. Engine 4, the ambulance, and officer's pickup truck also moved. The "call Engine 122" and Tanker 128 had to be relocated as well. The "call" Engine could be housed in the one newer bay at Pocasset, So the Monument Beach Station was renumbered "Station 4" and Pocasset became Station 2.

     Now, in 2022, with an increased need to solve the problem, a Southside Fire Station Committee was tasked with looking at potential Station sites. A list of (7) potential sites was eventually narrowed to (3) best sites. These were prioritized and followed up on.

     Ultimately, there were challenges with one of the preferred sites near the former Go Cart Track on McArthur Blvd (Rte 28) near Clay Pond Road. A deal could not be agreed on, and the search continued.

     By June of 2023, the Committee had come full circle, and was once again looking at the renovation/rebuilding/replacement option at the current Pocasset Site on Barlows Landing Road. Preliminary plans for an adequate Station were created and things seemed to be moving forward.

     In November 2023, the Committee determined that the potential Flood Zone issues with the Barlows Landing site needed to be addressed. So once again, the Committee is looking at options. Among them are sites on McArthur Blvd near Clay Pond Road (previously preferred), A ball field on Shore Road, and a piece of property near Dr Julius Kelly Lane off County Road in Cataumet.

Updated Dec 2023

 

 
CHILMARK  FIRE
     Chilmark had been looking at upgrading their "Beetlebung Corner" main fire station for a number of years.

     In 2018, a committee looked at several options. Ultimately, the optimal choice was not available and a reset took place.

     In the Fall of 2019, voters approved some money to move forward with a new fire station plan. In May 2021, $11 Million was approved for a simple new 4 bay fire station. After bids came in, it was determined that an additional $1.2 Million would be needed to complete the $12.6 Million project. That funding was approved at the May 26, 2022 Town Meeting for the new fire station and a separate, adjacent Tri-State EMS facility..

     On May 28, 2022 the old fire station was torn down, making room for the new station to be built. Apparatus was relocated to other locations during construction.

     Construction began on a small, 4 bay station for the fire apparatus, and the second 2 bay building with facilities and training space at an adjacent Tri-Town EMS Headquarters. Both essentially on the site of the original station and the lot behind.

     Chilmark FD was able to move in in the Summer of 2023, with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony in July 2023. Some apparatus was moved around and a new apparatus delivered.

     We have not yet seen the new facility in person, but look forward to it.

     Update Dec 2023

  
 

DENNIS FIRE
      The 2 bay North Dennis Fire Station 2 at Old Bass River Road near Route 6A was built in 1956. It was a Call Station, never designed for on duty staffing when built. As time passed, the station was eventually staffed. Initially with (2) personnel a shift in an ALS Engine, and then with (5) personnel per shift staffing an Engine and Ambulance.

     In December 2021, funding was approved for a new Station 2. A site had already been determined at 350 Paddocks Path. A large site, with good access to primary roads. Ground preparation immediately followed, with an official ground breaking on January 13, 2022. Construction began soon after.

     The new building will be (2) Story, with (3) large double deep drive through bays. A large meeting room, living space, and public space is also included. The original completion date was planned for Spring of 2023, but "supply chain" issues and other setbacks put off opening to sometime in 2024.

     Ultimately the department with utilize half the on duty crew at this station with (2) Engines, (2) Ambulances, and other support vehicles when opened.

     Update Dec 2023.

 

EDGARTOWN FIRE
      The
Edgartown Fire Station was built in 1966 on Pease Point Way.

       The Station was built as an unstaffed station, well before any on duty EMS or other personnel were even imagined.

      As Edgartown has grown, gotten busier, and added personnel, the department began looking in 2021 at several options for improving the facility.

      In April 2023, Edgartown voters approved a new $21 Million, 14,000 Square foot fire station to be built on the same site as the current Pease Point Way Station.

     More to follow.....

     Update Dec 2023.

 

FALMOUTH FIRE
    
Falmouth is one of the larger, busier departments on the Cape.

     For many years, Falmouth FD has operated from (5) Fire Stations.

    STATION 1 - Fire Headquarter on Main Street, in Falmouth Center, was completely renovated and added onto in 2002. For many years, up until about Jan 2017, dispatch had been in Headquarters. In 2017, a combined Fire/Police/Town communications center was opened in the Police Station.

    STATION 2 - Woods Hole Road was built in 1976. It is a single story, 3 bay station. Originally, staffed by a single (1) Firefighter per shift. It is currently staffed by (2) firefighters and includes an Ambulance.

    STATION 3 - North Falmouth was built in 1950 (73+ years). The station is (2) Story and (2) bays. Also originally staffed by only (1) on duty firefighter, it is currently staffed by (2) on duty personnel with an Engine and Ambulance. It is on a lot that does not permit further expansion and the station is tight with newer apparatus and an Ambulance.

     STATION 4 - West Falmouth was built in 1930 (93+ years). It is a small (2) story brick, single bay station staffed by (1) firefighter for years. Also located on a very small lot with no place to go. The bay was modified as much as possible, but is still not able to house the majority of Falmouth's current apparatus fleet. A number of issues, including staffing challenges and constraints on apparatus options, almost led to the station being closed permanently in July 2020.

     Concerned citizens, and some additional funding, allowed for the station to remain operational, provided it could be staffed with (2) per shift and that a fire truck that was in service could fit in the bay.

     In December 2021, a major water leak flooded the basement and closed the station until repairs could be made.

     STATION 5 - East Falmouth Fire Station was built in 1980. It is a single story building with (3) double deep, drive through apparatus bays. In addition, the building houses the department's Repair and Maintenance Shops. This station covers a lot of area and tends to be the second busiest district in town. Originally staffed with (2) personnel, in recent years that was boosted to (4) personnel including an officer, allowing it to handle many calls that once pulled personnel out of Station 1 as well.

     STATION 6 - Sandwich Road, Hatchville. For decades, talk of building a Fire Station to cover the north-central, north-east part of town known as Hatchville had be discussed with little or no progress.

     On May 17, 2022 Falmouth voters approved $10 Million funding for a new fire station to be built at 878 Sandwich Road in Hatchville. A (3) bay, double deep, 11,000 sq ft station is being built on the site. Construction began in Spring 2023. The new station, when completed sometime in 2024, is expected to be staffed by (2) personnel, with at least an Engine and Ambulance. The location of the station, essentially in the middle of town, will likely enable it to also support districts  downtown, in the north, and in the east.

     Discussion continues on whether the North Falmouth 3 and West Falmouth Station 4 can be refurbished, rebuilt, combined, or replaced at some time in the future. Staffing and apparatus size will continue to push the issues until resolved. Whether the town ultimately ends up with a "North-West" Station and (5) total, or if (6) Stations works in the future is something to keep an eye on.

HARWICH FIRE
    
The Harwich Firefighter Association acquired the old Harwich Fire Station on Bank Street in 2022 with a plan to renovate it and preserve some of the department's history..

     The building had been vacated in 1996 when the current Harwich Headquarters opened on Sisson Road. Work began in 2023 to turn the old station into a useful facility, that among other things, will become home to the 1926 Maxim antique pumper that once served from that building as Engine 1.

     More to follow....

     Update Dec 2023


 

ORLEANS FIRE
    
The Orleans Fire Station was built in 1987 (36+ years).

     The brick fire station is on multiple levels, with (2) separate apparatus levels. The larger room is (3) deep bays under the station that typically house larger fire apparatus. The second (2) story, double deep, drive through bays is closer to personnel and houses Ambulances.

     The Headquarters offices, staffing quarters, and facilities were not designed well for current or future staffing.

     In 2020, a Committee was formed to look at options for the future of the Orleans Fire Station. The study on whether the current station or a replacement station would best serve the future needs.

     Update Dec 2023


 

PLYMOUTH FIRE
    
Plymouth is one of the largest, and fastest growing towns in the state.

     Currently Plymouth is served by (7) Fire Stations.

     STATION 1 - Headquarters on Sandwich Street (3A) in downtown Plymouth was a former building, that was renovated an opened as a Fire Headquarters around 1978. Two story brick, 3 deep bays, plus vehicle storage in a basement level. A dispatch room in the front of the station and living quarters and administrative facilities on 2nd floor.

     In about 2019, some ordinary repairs resulted in some ceiling collapses and related issues on the second floor, rendering the station unable to be fully occupied until repairs were made. Apparatus had to be temporarily relocated at other stations and a mobile trailer unit was brought in until living quarters could be re-occupied.

     The station was repaired and reoccupied, but a town-wide Fire Department needs study also looks at options for a potential new Fire Headquarters in the future. One location on Obery Street would be ideal in many ways according to the report.

     STATION 2 - West Plymouth, once referred to as Seven Corners, was built around 1975, on Samoset Street. A single story, brick station with 3 double deep drive through bays, and a large 2 bay Repair /Maintenance Shop.

     Not long after Station 1 had its problems in 2019, Station 2 also was found to have issues that required immediate attention. A trailer was also brought in for staffing to live in.

     In 2023, a major renovation began on Station 2. The living quarters were torn down and a large new two story structure was added. Work IN PROGRESS as of Dec 2023.

     STATION 3 - The Pine Hills is a large development near the middle of the town. A new Fire Station 3 was built to support the area in 2001. It is a single story (3) bay double deep station.

     STATION 4 - Known as the Bourne Road Station, Station 4 is a (2) bay brick station that opened about 1977. The station is probably the most remote from all other stations in the south-west side of town which has seen tremendous growth in recent years.

     Plymouth plans to replace Station 4 with a new station as soon as funding is approved.

     STATION 5 - The Manomet Fire Station 5 was built about 1989, to replace an older facility. The brick station has (3) deep bays with (1) drive through bay.

     A major renovation and addition to Station 5 began in 2023 and should be completed in 2024. Work is IN PROGRESS Dec 2023.

     STATION 6 - The Cedarville Fire Station 6 was built in 1999, replacing an older station. The station is single story brick (with basement and EOC) with (3) double deep bays.

     STATION 7 - North Plymouth. The oldest active Station in Plymouth , built in 1911, was on Spooner St in North Plymouth.

     Funding was approved for construction of a new North Plymouth Station in 2017 and construction had already had begun on a new North Plymouth Station 7 at 15 Hedge Road in 2019 when the old station had to be closed in Nov 2019 due to structural issues. Apparatus was relocated for about 6 months, until the new Station opened in  July 2020.

     The new station is 2 story brick with (3) double deep bays.

     PLYMOUTH will continue to upgrade current stations and probably look at new facilities in the future.

PROVINCETOWN POLICE
      A new Provincetown Police Station was approved 2017.  It was reconsidered and the design adjusted in 2019.

     The new police station is under construction at the intersection of Route 6 and Shank Painter Road.

Bourne Fire Stations

BOURNE
Bourne is one of the more unique towns on Cape Cod.
The town covers about 40.7 square miles. A significant area
of the town is within the Massachusetts Military Reservation,
also known as Joint Base Cape Cod.

One of the most significant features of Bourne is the Cape Cod Canal
which cuts the town in half connecting Cape Cod Bay with Buzzards Bay.
Crossing the Canal is done by two aging automobile bridges and
a railroad bridge. Traffic congestion is a common concern at
the bridges and often effects emergency response times.

FIRE STATIONS
Bourne has long been served by 4 fire stations.
Two are North of the Canal and two are South.

NORTH SIDE

Station 1 - Buzzards Bay Fire Station
The long time Headquarters and busiest fire station is located
on Main Street in Buzzards Bay. It was built in 1935 and added
onto in 1956. The building is in a historical flood zone that was
impacted by hurricanes in 1938 and 1944. The offices were
located on the second floor an were not ADA accessible.
In 2017, the Headquarters offices were relocated to the
newer, accessible Sagamore Station 3.

Station 3 - Sagamore Fire Station
In 2006, as part of the Sagamore Bridge "Flyover" project
that eliminated the Sagamore Rotary Circle, a new Fire Station 3
was built on Meetinghouse Lane. In 2017, the Headquarters
offices were moved to this station from Buzzards Bay.
The station is not the optimal location for headquarters,
but is the only facility currently able to serve the public.

SOUTH SIDE

Station 2 - Monument Beach Fire Station
The oldest station, originally a barn built in the 1890s, served
Monument Beach as an unstaffed Call Fire Station for many years.
At onetime it was staffed by 1 firefighter, but that was discontinued
in the 1970s. The station has recently been utilized for fulltime
staffing with the use of a trailer since 2020. It has been renamed Station 4.
A duty Lieutenant, Engine, and Ambulance are assigned.

Station 4 - Pocasset Fire Station
The Pocasset Fire Station 4 was built in 1947 and added onto
in the 1970s. The station was built in an area with a high water table
and had frequently needed a sump pump to keep the basement
under the apparatus floor pumped out. The station was staffed
and an ambulance added in the1980s.
In November 2021, structural issues deemed the Pocasset station
had to be closed. Personnel and apparatus was relocated to
the previously unstaffed Monument Beach Station.
The Pocasset station has been renamed Station 2.

STATION STUDY

There had been talk of doing something about a "South-side"
fire station prior to the closing of the Pocasset station.
A committee had been looking at potential sites for a new
fire station. After the Pocasset Station 4 closed in 2021,
the committee looked at 7 potential sites, narrowing the
list to about 3 sites.

The goal is to find the right station location for a South
Station that would replace the two old stations.
The preferred site appears to be near the old Go Cart
Track at McArthur Blvd (Route 28) and Clay Pond Road.

UPDATE AUG 2023
In June 2023, the property owners of the desired land decided not to sell.
The Committee returned back to assessing the potential use of the old
Pocasset Fire Station site on Barlows Landing Road as a potential
site for a new Fire Station.

Dennis Fire Station

DENNIS FIRE STATION 2
(Under Construction 2022)

NORTH DENNIS - STATION 2
Dennis Town Meeting approved a $14.6 Million price tag for a new Fire Station 2
to be located at 350 Paddocks Path on the North side of town.
The meeting was held November 2 , 2021 and the positive vote was a vast majority.
Dennis voters needed to give their final funding approval at a December 7, 2021
vote that showed 722 in favor and only 153 against.

Once approval was assured, site clearing began and the official "Ground Breaking Ceremony"
was held on January 13, 2022.

Construction has been continuing at a steady pace with an expected construction
time of about 18 months with a projected opening in Spring 2023.
The building will be about 11,000 square feet including 3 double deep drive through
apparatus bays, appropriate living quarters and a large training meeting room.

The old Station at 1015 Old Bass River Road was built about 1956
with only about 4000 square feet. It was strictly a call station until about 2013
when some permanent staffing began. Currently about 5 personnel are assigned
per shift to the station that was not designed for any fulltime personnel.

EDGARTOWN FIRE STATION
(Discussion 2021)

The Edgartown Fire Department is starting to look ahead at its options for
expanding or replacing the main Edgartown Fire Station. The present station
on Pease Point Way was built around 1966 and added onto already during the
1980s and again in 2005. The station was never designed for permanent staffing,
larger apparatus, or many of the other requirements of modern facilities.
The following article in the MV Times discussed the situation.
Nov 30, 2021

PLANNING AHEAD

 

 

Falmouth Fire Stations

FALMOUTH
Falmouth is a large town of about 44.1 Square Miles.
The town has been protected by 5 fire stations for many years.
While the downtown headquarters was always staffed by several on duty
personnel, the smaller outlying stations for many years had only 1 person
on duty at any given time. A large roster of call personnel in
those villages responded to calls and for many years that system
worked pretty well.

MUCH HAS CHANGED
As call volumes continued to increase with many more EMS calls and
many significant changes in staffing needs, the department has
struggled to keep up. Newer stations were built in Woods Hole 2 in 1976
and East Falmouth 5 in 1980, and the Headquarters was completely
rebuilt in 2002. Staffing is slowly being added to handle about 8,500
calls annually - the busiest department on the Cape.

SMALL, OLD STATIONS
The 2 bay North Falmouth Station 3 was built in about 1953
 and the single bay, small West Falmouth Station 4 in 1930.
Both stations have serious age issues. As more modern apparatus
has grown in size and personnel needs have evolved, the need
to upgrade the facilities servicing North and West Falmouth
has been a concern.

Falmouth had decided to close the West Falmouth Station due to
staffing struggles and problems with the station itself.
Some additional funding in 2020 led to the station being
staffed with 2 personnel per shift when available. Otherwise,
the station is sometimes closed because of staffing.

Additionally, for decades, the town has talked about another
fire station to cover the north central part of town known as
Hatchville.

HATCHVILLE
On May 17, 2022, Falmouth voters approved $10M funding
for a new 11,000 sq ft Hatchville Fire Station. Located at 878 Sandwich Road,
It is expected to have 3 bays and have at least 1 Engine and 1 Ambulance assigned.
It is likely the additional space and central location will see this station quickly
become a hub that will serve or support much of the town, as well as Hatchville.

It is still to be determined what Falmouth will do about the fire stations and
service in the West and North villages.

Update August 2022

. The planned facility will be approximately 11,000 sq ft
on a town owned property at 878 Sandwich Road.

anticipated to begin in 2023 with about a year for completion.
The station will have 3 bays and allow for future needs of the town.

FALMOUTH STATION ARTICLE

WEST FALMOUTH FIRE STATION

The West Falmouth Fire Station, built in the 1930s, was a "1 man station" for many years. 
It is barely able to house a single modern pumper, A variety of issues have closed the
station for extended periods in recent years. At one point in 2019, the station was scheduled
to be closed permanently. The residents of West Falmouth spoke up and the town
made efforts to provide the additional staffing needed to keep the station open,
at least on a day to day basis. Staffing of 2 per shift when available continues.

The station itself however, is on a small piece of land and there are limitations
to what could be done to make the station more functional for the long term.
Discussions of somehow combining Station 3 and 4 into a more modern
facility that could serve both villages, and other options have been ongoing.

Plymouth Fire Dept


 

PLYMOUTH STATION 2

The Plymouth Fire Department covers the large, growing town from
7 fire stations. In recent years, Plymouth's aging stations have been
found to have a number of significant issues requiring immediate actions.

Plymouth is currently taking steps to repair, improve, and upgrade
the West Plymouth (Seven Hills) Fire Station 2. The living quarters
were found to be uninhabitable over a year ago. Crews have been
living in a trailer on site since. One of the apparatus bays will be
converted into temporary living quarters, while the old quarters
are upgraded. This has resulted in several apparatus being moved
to other stations.

MORE STATION 2 PROGRESS

STATION 1
Previously, the Central Fire Headquarters Station 1 in
Plymouth center had been uninhabitable when an interior
ceiling collapsed revealing hazardous conditions that also led
to crews being housed in a trailer and apparatus relocated.
Those repairs have been completed.

STATION 4
The Bourne Road Station 4 was built about 1977.
That area has been growing rapidly.
The Town is looking toward replacing that station
with a new station if funding can be approved.
Update July 2023

STATION 7
The oldest Fire Station 7 in North Plymouth had to be closed
earlier than planned due to structural hazards.
A new North Plymouth Station 7 was being built in the mean time
and has now been occupied.

STATION 5
On the agenda, is a similar renovation of the Manomet Fire Station 5.
Site work on this project began in July 2023.

CHILMARK FIRE STATION
(Approved 2021)
(New Opened July 2023)

The Town of Chilmark on Martha's Vineyard has been looking for years
at some options for either updating or replacing their humble little fire
station next to the Town Hall. In 2018 the town was looking at specific
sites and options.

In the Fall of 2019, Chilmark authorized some funding to develop plans
to raze and replace the main station at Beatlebung Corner with a new facility.
At the same time, the Tri-Town Ambulance, serving West Tisbury, Chilmark,
and Aquinnah will be getting a new facility adjacent to the planned fire station.

The images of the proposed new Fire Station in Chilmark
reflects a 4 bay, wood construction station to replace the
old station on the same site. Funding $11 Million approved at May 2021
Town Meeting.
UPDATE MAY 2021

NOTE
Chilmark went back to a
Special Town Meeting on March 26, 2022
to seek an additional $1.2 Million for their Fire Station/EMS Station project.
Bids for the estimated $12.6 Million project came in above what was
previously approved in 2021. 

ADDITIONAL FUNDING APPROVED!
Old Station Torn Down March 28, 2022

Onset Fire Station

ONSET FIRE STATION
(Opened Sept 2021)


Onset Fire District voters approved a new Fire Station at the May 15, 2017
District Meeting. The originally proposed station, which would have provided
 for much needed space and future growth was estimated to cost $13.9 M.
An amendment during the meeting slashed the budget to $8 M. That sent
the project back to the drawing board. Huge cuts were made to work
within the budget. The entire design changed, loosing much of the
space needed in modern stations.

One of the biggest changes, even before the budget was slashed, was
to move the station out of the center of Onset where it had been a
mainstay since about 1894.  The current station at 5 East Central Ave
was built around 1950, next to the original station.
The new station was planned for a parcel of land across from the
Onset Water Department on Sand Pond Road, north of the Cranberry Highway
at the Onset Avenue lights.

The site was cleared by December 2019.
Ground was officially broken on March 11, 2020
and construction began soon after.
The station was planned to be moved into in the
Summer of 2021, but as is often the case, was delayed
until September 2021 when the move was made.

It will take some time to get fully moved in and comfortable
in the new station.

(Opened July 13, 2020)


The Plymouth Fire Department opened their newest Fire Station No.7
at 15 Hedge Road, off Court Street, in North Plymouth on July 13, 2020.

Construction on the new station began with the clearing of land in 2019.
The 2 Story, three bay, double deep, brick fire station is home to
Engine 7, the new Ladder 3, Breaker 177, and Forestry Engine 8-1.
Housing of an ambulance was also planned.

The old Station 7 was built over 107 years ago at 0 Spooner Street
(not far from the new station). It was originally occupied by horse drawn apparatus.
That station had been scheduled to close when the new station was completed,
but it closed early on Nov 7, 2019 due to structural (floor) problems with the old station.
Apparatus was relocated temporarily until the new station opened.

WELLFLEET STATION 2
The former South Wellfleet Station 2
was built in the 1970s on Route 6 in South Wellfleet.

The sub station was too small for apparatus and had no facilities
for personnel.
