Cambridge Area EMS and FireStation Improvement Information
This page will feature the ongoing process of our improvement project. Any information relating to the project will be found right here, and will be updated as the information is presented.
Last Update: March 24, 2021
The Cambridge Volunteer Fire Department and Cambridge Area Emergency Medical Services are currently in the process of planning out an improvement of our current fire and EMS facility. The building, located on Main Street, was built in 1984, and is no longer able to safely continue serving as such a facility. Please browse our site for information about the project.
Questions, comments, concerns? We would love to hear from you!

Want to see the station or ask questions in person? Please stop down on March 30th for our last of three improvement project open houses. Fire Chief Terry Johnson and other members will be on hand to answer questions and give tours of the building.

Recently, there was a new website launched, “Citizens for a Responsible Cambridge Fire and EMS Station.” The site is dedicated to finding a responsible solution to our improvement needs. We would like to take the time to respond to the information featured on the FAQ section of the site. Feel free to reference the site here: https://www.cambridgefireandemsreferendum.org
Please take some time to read our open letter to our residents with further information in response to the concerns raised by this new website:
