The most dramatic change was for #1 with the Falmouth Fire Department's

Hyannis was #2 in runs with 6,619 in 2014, maintaining #2 rank with
an additional 290 calls over 2013. (note updated 2/4/15 from orig 6,550 total)

Yarmouth Fire Department trended down for the first time in years
going from #1 to #3 with 6,347 runs, down from 6,709 the previous year.

In another interesting change, the Bourne Fire Department increased
310 calls over their 4,376 in 2013 to tie the Dennis Fire Department

HYANNIS

HYANNIS STATION REJECTED AGAIN
Voters of the Hyannis Fire District once again voted favorably
in support of a new Hyannis Fire Headquarters, but for the third
time in less than a year could not pass the $17+ million expense
by the required 2/3 majority. It is unclear at this point what will
happen next, but there are a number of issues that need to be
addressed if the department has to remain in the current station.
Oct 2014

 

 

Chatham FD Relocates

The Chatham fire station has been torn down and the lot is being
prepared for a new station.
Oct 2014

THE CHATHAM FIRE DEPARTMENT

into temporary quarters in the DPW garage at 221 Crowell Road.
The old station is slated to be torn down soon to make room
for a new headquarters on the same site.

Carver Fire Headquarters



CARVER FIRE DEPARTMENT

The front (street side) elevation of the proposed new Carver Central Fire Station.
The apparatus bays will be double deep drive through coming out the left and right
sides of the rear of the building.

The $8.5 Million building will  be built on the current training facility property
up the street from the old station and will also include a state of the art training
facility. The old station would eventually be torn down allowing for the future
construction of a new Police facility.

The project was approved by voters in 2013.
 

CARVER FIRE HEADQUARTERS
Voters in Carver approved the construction of a new Central
Fire Headquarters and training facility at 99 Main Street
just up the street from the current station. The old station built
in the 1950s and added on to has been outgrown. The new
station will be built on a property owned by the department
as used as their training facility.
Nov 2013

 

Oak Bluffs Headquarters

 

OAK BLUFFS FIRE HEADQUARTERS
Voters in Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard approved the construction
of a new Fire Headquarters in 2014.

The present facility (shown above) will be torn down in the Fall of 2014
and apparatus will be relocated for about 1-1/2 years while a new fire
headquarters is built on the same site.

SCANNERS AND RE-BANDING ISSUES

    Many of you who monitor Cape Cod Fire and Police Departments on various "trunk tracker" style scanners may have noticed problems recently with the implementation of the re-banding of the Massachusetts State Police (MSP) Trunked Radio system.

    Re-banding is a national reallocation of radio frequencies that has been underway for several years across the country. The local switchover took place in March 2013.

    The changes were expected to make many older scanners obsolete, HOWEVER

    It is possible that many, if not all of the newer and older scanners WILL WORK if reprogrammed with the updated frequencies. Older scanners including the BC780, BC785, BC895, Radio Shack units, and others will work if re-programmed!

    I recommend you break out the Owners Manual if you haven't already, or download an online version, brush up on the basics of programming your scanners and give it a try. YOU WILL BE HAPPY!

    Here is a list of the frequencies used by the system. If you enter them correctly (make sure you enter them as M (Motorola) TRUNK channels, they should work.

    SEE FREQS

   Go to RadioReference.com for additional information on frequencies and programming scanners with what you want to listen to.

    For those who are not already aware, you can also listen to the action online as well. The LIVE SCANNER FEEDS that were previously on RadioReference.com have been moved over to a system called BROADCASTIFY.com. You can listen to many different feeds, but should check out the local Cape Cod Fire Departments on the feed provided which covers all the Cape Fire Departments, including OPS channels, and as a bonus also gets much of the Southeaster, Mass area off Cape.

     This same feed is also available on a Phone App. So if you wish to listen to the Scanner here on the Cape you can certainly do so in a number of ways thanks to
Tim
 CAPE COD Area Fire Radio   and Scott   CAPE COD Fire & Police Radio  who provide these services.

    The link for Cape Cod Area Fire Radio at the top of my Home Pages also brings your to this feature.
