New Fire Station 662 "Construction UPDATE"
November 21, 2013
The Board of Fire Commissioners and the members of the Voorhees Fire District wish to update you on the New Fire Station located at 2002 S. Burnt Mill Road.
The Fire District would like to thank all the residents for their understanding and patience during the construction. The project was scheduled to be completed in June 2013 but was not. Because of that, and other problems the Fire District had with the contractor, the Board of Fire Commissioners dismissed the contractor from the project, effective August 5, 2013, and demanded that the contractor's surety complete the project. The Fire District and the surety have reached an agreement for the surety to take over and complete the contractor's remaining work. The surety has indicated the work will be completed by late summer of 2014.
Just to keep everyone informed the old station is fully operational. We will transfer members and equipment to the new station (phase 1) when completed. Then the old station (phase 2) will be demolished and the new administrative wing will be constructed. Fire department personnel and apparatus have not been changed in any way and are ready to serve the residents and businesses of Voorhees if and when called upon. Chief James Pacifico Jr.
