HYANNIS – The Hyannis Fire Department has been waiting in anticipation for their new fire station since construction began during the winter.

Owner’s Project Manager Paul Griffin says progress is being made as they close in on completion of Phase 1.

“It’s certainly coming along. We were hoping to have the first phase complete by July 1. Right now, we’re looking that it may get delayed by a few weeks,” said Griffin.

He said weather and a delay in getting some material from overseas are the reasons for the slow down.

The new $18.5 million station is located between the CVS Pharmacy and the old fire complex on High School Road between North and Stevens Streets in Hyannis.

Griffin said the new station be based on a double entrance layout that will include seven apparatus bays.

Some new amenities in the building will include a heated concrete floor, a triage room and kitchen.

“The administration building is going to have 12 independent bunk rooms for the firefighters with the capacity for them to double up,” Griffin said.

They are also creating room for expansion if needed over the next 50 years.

A 9-1-1 memorial will also be installed outside the new building.

Griffin said the current building is “at the end of its useful life,” with unhealthy conditions for firefighters.
