History of Planning
In 2004, the Board of Selectmen recognized that the old fire station could no longer meet the needs of the community and appointed a committee to review options that included Selectmen, Fire Department personnel and citizens. This committee, with technical assistance, reviewed many options including expanding the former station and recommended building a new fire station. Extensive programmed space analysis was performed and the committee made presentations to the townspeople who asked that the process be revisited. After hearing the voters’ concerns, the Board of Selectmen, Town Administrator and Fire Chief organized a professional construction committee consisting of Trident Project Advantage Group as an Owner’s Representative, Berard Martel Architects as the Architect and Eckman Construction as the Construction Manager to review and identify areas to be reconfigured. As a result of a critical review, economies were discovered that reduced the size down to 18,000 square feet and a revised cost of $3.9 million.
The proposed fire station has been designed to last more than 50 years because of its concrete construction. It accommodates the growing professional firefighter and Emergency Medical staff as well as the on-call contingent for training and living conditions. The bays will accommodate all the current department equipment and provide the room necessary for safe and efficient response times.
Fire services provided today are considerably different than they were in the ‘70s when the existing station was built. The department was an all-volunteer organization then, working out of what we now know as the old Town Hall Annex. This location could not accommodate the newly purchased equipment hence the construction of the old fire station. It was designed to serve the town’s future needs. Who knew that Pelham would grow so quickly and expand emergency services to include newer bigger trucks as well as an ambulance service? In 38 years we have gone from an all-volunteer organization with no Emergency Medical Services to 19 full-time personnel plus a contingent of 20 plus on-call responders. In 1974, the service responded to 151 calls. In 2013, that number has grown to over 1,300.

The new facility is an 18,624 square-foot station. The building was designed to meet current building codes and standards for a safe working environment for personnel. The facility has 12 apparatus bays, a gross decontamination room, gear storage space, administrative offices, bunk rooms, lockers rooms, and training areas. The building was with high performance equipment to reduce cooling and heating costs. With this building now erect, the Village Green is now complete, with its traditional New England exterior is fits the bill for the Town of Pelham.
