Plymouth Fire Station Shut Down Permanently Due To Asbestos

BUT HE LATER ADMITTED HE NEVER DISCUSSED IT WITH THE PRESIDENT. AND NOW AT 5:30 A NEW AND EVEN MORE DANGEROUS DISCOVERY. A FEW WEEKS AGO A PART OF THE STATION WAS SHUT DOWN AFTER AN ENGINEER SAID THE FLOOR WAS NOT STABLE ENOUGH TO HOLD THE EQUIPMENT. NOW ASBESTOS HAS BEEN FOUND IN THE WALLS THERE. BILL SHIELDS HAS THE STORY TONIGHT FROM PLYMOUTH. Reporter: TWO FIREFIGHTERS IN HAZMAT SUITS REMOVED CONTAMINATED GEAR FROM THE NORTH PLYMOUTH FIRE HOUSE TODAY.THE GEAR AND THE OLD STRUCTURE CONTAINED ASBESTOS. NOW THEY WILL HAVE TO BE EXAMINED. AND WE ARE NOT Braced. DON’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENING IN OUR OWN BUILDING. Reporter: THE AND THE HEADQUARTERS, A A ROOF REPAIR JOB CREATED EVEN MORE PROBLEMS. AND EXPOSED Matters HERE. OF THE WEEKS THAT HAD GONE ON FOR A WHILE. AND IN THE KITCHEN AREA AND SOME CABINETRIES. Reporter: WITH THE LIVE-IN HEADQUARTERS, UNINHABITABLE, RESTING IN A TRAILER THAT WAS BROUGHT IN. AND THE COMMANDER’S OFFICE IS IN THE GARAGE BAY. COTS ARE PUT WITH THEIR SPACE AND SOME CREWS ARE WORKING OUT OF THE KINGSTON FIRE HOUSE. IT’S OBVIOUSLY AFFECTING THAT RESPONSE TIME. WE MINIMIZE IT AS MUCH AS WE CAN BY CHANGING THE RESPONSE OF THE OTHER STATION TO MAKE UP FOR IT. NOW THE QUESTION BECOMES HOW MUCH MONEY DO THEY NEED TO FIX THAT SITUATION? AND ALWAYS TRY TO BALANCE WHAT YOU HAVE AVAILABLE FOR Fund AND HOW MUCH YOU COULD BORROW IS A BALANCING ACT THAT IS DIFFICULT. Reporter: REPLACING THIS ONE, IT SHOULD BE READY IN JUNE, BUT DOESN’T SOLVE THAT OVERALL PROBLEM.AND OF THE SEVEN FIRE STATIONS THEY HAVE, FIVE NEED MAJOR REPAIRS. THEY WILL LIKELY NEED THAT FIRE.
