1965 - 2018
Posted Oct 19, 2018

The Hyannis Fire Station that served the District for some 53 years, was closed on Wednesday
October 17, 2018. It was built in 1965 and at the time represented the cutting edge of fire stations.
Its modern look and spacious apparatus room was the envy of many. Over the years, as apparatus
increased in numbers and size, the station soon became crowded and an addition was put on
the rear of the once drive around station in 1987.

By the 2000's it was obvious that the department had outgrown the facility and studies looked
at various options to address the concerns. After numerous efforts, voters finally approved
funding for a new fire station in April 2016

Ground was broken on May 8, 2017 for the new $18.5 Million station. The new station
is being built in two phases so that the old station could remain open until the new station
could be operational. The old station will be torn down soon to make room for Phase 2
to be completed on the new station.
