The City of Newton’s new state-of-the-art public safety building is now open: Fire Station 10 at 755 Dedham Street.
This new facility is going to save City money and help the department respond to emergencies more efficiently:
- There is an air-line and water hook-up in every apparatus bay for faster turnaround time of apparatus for the next call.
- A gear dryer will allow personnel to clean and dry their gear from contaminants in a much more expedited, efficient fashion, thus protecting our investment in allowing the expensive gear to last longer and to better protect personnel when they enter into hostile environments.
- A new feature for this building is an Underground Confined Space Training Facility allowing personnel to train on underground and confined space rescue involving an oxygen deficient atmosphere.
- A Drafting Tank Facility, which is an underground pump testing pit, will allow personnel to perform the annual test of pumper trucks in the city avoiding lost time and the expense of traveling off site, out of the city.
- The station now has enlarged overhead doors to accommodate the larger fire rigs being built by today’s standards.
- The building has a fire detection and suppression system protecting the building and its occupants.
- Moving the Wires Division to the Fire Station 10 location has allowed the Newton Fire Department to meet programmatic needs at Station 3.
- The new Wires Division building at Fire Station 10 includes a crane and spool racks to allow for the safe and efficient storage of necessary wire spools.
