West Hamilton Beach Volunteer Fire Department

Firehouse

         The Original Quarters was a house located on the same lot where the current building stands.  It was converted into a garage which would be come the firehouse. Through the years many changes were made due to the variations in apparatus.  The Original Building stood until 1992 to make way for the new building due to an unsound foundation.  During construction the quarters was relocated into a trailer which still stands on the property and is in use by a non for profit organization. 

        The current quarters stands two stories high and is divided into two different apparatus bays.  The fire bay has one door and fits two fire apparatus side by side. Firefighter gear, work bench, battery chargers as well as spare SCBA bottles are located in the fire bay.  Best access to the fire bay from the second floor would be via the original pole from the original firehouse.  The ambulance bay also fits two ems apparatus side by side but each vehicle has its own bay door.  Also located in the ambulance bay is a backup generator, EMS storage, Equipment storage, a restroom and a mess sink. On the second floor, we have a bunk room with three bunk beds, an officers office, house watch, full size bathroom , kitchen, lounge and meeting room.
