Weymouth's New Fire Station

19 April 2010, 13:36

Work starts today on Weymouth's new community firestation.

The old Westhaven Junior School in Radipole Lane is being demolished to make way for it.

After demolition they will crush the concrete and re-use it to from the foundations of the fire station - reducing the carbon footprint of the project.

Chief Fire Officer, Darran Gunter, added; "As a fire and rescue service, our aim is to prevent incidents occurring, and, where incidents do require us to attend, to provide an effective and safe response.  The new community fire station will have a live demonstration area where members of the public can view the devastating and explosive effects of fire.  There will also be a number of other education facilities and general facilities for the communities and in particular vulnerable groups to use".

Demolition works are expected to go on until the end of May 2010, with the site being ready for construction once contracts are signed.

The building is set to be finished by July next year.
