WHAT'S GOING ON
Falmouth Falling Apart?
Vital Apparatus Out of Service.
4 VITAL APPARATUS TAKEN OUT OF
2 Pumpers (Engine 20 & 24) and 2 brush trucks (Breaker 16 and 17) have all been
(unexpectedly) removed from service in November 2015.
WEST FALMOUTH WITHOUT A FIRE TRUCK
With NO spare apparatus available, West Falmouth has no fire truck.
The Falmouth Fire Department protects a year round population of over 31,000,
(much larger in season) within 44.5 square miles. In 2014 the Falmouth
Fire Rescue responded to 6,674 emergency calls (over 18/day average) making it
the BUSIEST of the Cape's departments.
The department minimally staffs and operates from 5
#1 Falmouth Center - Engine 21, Ladder 26, Amb 37, Car 28 with 7 personnel
#2 Woods Hole - Engine 22, Amb 38 with 2 personnel
#3 North Falmouth - Engine 23, Amb 35 with 2 personnel
#4 West Falmouth - Engine 24 with 1 personnel
#5 East Falmouth - Engine 25, Breaker 18, Amb 36 with 2 personnel
The department has a number of other apparatus not listen here.
Personnel listed are "normal" in station shift staffing levels. Off duty
personnel are often recalled to provide basic coverage during calls.
AGING APPARATUS PROBLEMS
A recent inspection of fire apparatus concluded that several pieces of vital
apparatus are no longer safe or road worthy and have been taken out of service
leaving the department facing some serious coverage challenges.
Engine 24, the 28 year old 1987 Ford/E-One pumper at
West Falmouth has been taken out of service permanently due to serious
mechanical problems in early November 2015.
Engine 20, the 26 year old 1989 Ford/E-One spare pumper
has also been taken out of service for similar mechanical issues in Nov 2015.
Breaker 16, the 35 year old 1980 Ford/Farrar 750 gallon
Brush Breaker assigned to Station #1 has also been removed from service due to
serious mechanical issues in Nov 2015.
Breaker 17, the 38 year old 1977 Dodge Power Wagon /
350 gallon brush breaker at Station #2 has also been taken out of service.
Breaker 15, a 43 year old 1971 International/Thibault
800 gallon Brush Breaker was taken out of service in 2014.
WEST FALMOUTH STATION SIZE A PROBLEM
The department already has a new Pierce
engine on order to replace Engine 24, but it is still about 8 months away
and the new engine WILL NOT FIT into the
1930's single bay West Falmouth Station 4, so the plan has been to reassign the
20 year old 1995 International/E-One pumper of Engine 25 (East Falmouth)
to West Falmouth when the new engine arrives. This is the only other Falmouth
engine that can fit into that station (with some modifications).
Attempts to get town support for a new West Falmouth
station failed years ago leaving that significant area of town now without local
fire protection. Engine 24 also routinely backs up downtown and North Falmouth
and other parts of town on calls.
NO SPARE ENGINE
When Engine 24 went out of service, just
as when any other engine goes out of service for routine or emergency
maintenance, Falmouth usually moves their spare Engine 20, a 26 year old 1989
Ford/E-One (same design as Engine 24) to replace it until repairs are done.
Unfortunately, on inspection, it was also determined that Engine 20 was no
longer road worthy and it too has been permanently taken out of service.
The backup plan to having no engines available, would
be to at least place a fire truck with some water and a pump in a station to
cover. Falmouth has used brush trucks for this duty from time to time in
2 OF 3 BRUSH TRUCKS OUT OF SERVICE
When both Engine s 24 and 20 went out of service, the backup plan to move a
brush truck into West Falmouth (only 2 would fit) fell apart when both Breaker
16 and Breaker 17 also failed inspections and were removed from service. The
only other brush truck Breaker 18 (2010 International) is too tall to fit in the

It is uncertain at this time what Falmouth will do
relative to replacing their spare engine or 2 brush trucks.

Voters in Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard approved the
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
headquarters is built on the same site.
SEE OAK BLUFFS PLANS
NOVEMBER 19, 2014 MV TIMES STORY
approved approximately $15 Million
in April 2015 to construct a new fire station at the
Fairgrounds Road location of the Nantucket Police station.
The town had sought to fund a
full public safety complex
including fire, police, and communications in 2008,
but funding was only approved for the police and radio
communications at that time.
The present Nantucket Fire
Station was built in 1980
at Pleasant St & Sparks Ave. It replaced the old fire
station in the congested center of town.
Nantucket has grown
significantly since the station
was built in 1980. Increased demands for service
and a station that has been full for years, and the
inability to expand on site have led to the need
to move off site and start new.
In addition to the central
station, Nantucket also has two
small unstaffed stations in Siasconset and Madaket.
The department has 5 personnel on a shift with a
minimum of 3 personnel on duty.
It operates 5 pumpers, 1 aerial, 2 tankers,
1 heavy rescue, 3 ambulances, and a number
of support units.
Carver Fire Headquarters
CARVER FIRE DEPARTMENT
The front (street side) elevation of the proposed new Carver Central
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
construction of a new Police facility.
The project was approved by voters in 2013.
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.

Foundation is taking place at new fire station.

He became a Paramedic in the mid 1980s and most
recently worked for the Lakeville, MA Fire
Department as a Lieutenant/Shift Commander /
Paramedic. He takes over from Chief Brian
Davis who retired in September 2015. Congrats to
both! Oct 26, 2015
BOURNE FIRE DEPARTMENT
Retired Deputy Fire Chief Ronald E. Forsberg, age
82, passed away on October 4, 2015. He was a
US Army Vet from the Korean War. He served on
the Bourne FD for 29 years, retiring in 1997 as a
Deputy. Oct 2015
BOURNE FIRE DEPARTMENT
The town of Bourne has voted to cut its budget
rather than approving a Prop 2-1/2 override.
The impact on the town and the services provided
could be very significant. The Fire Department could
loose 4 positions due to the cuts, but the impact
could be much worse since a Federal grant has
covered the cost of 8 other firefighter/paramedics
for the past couple years. The grant is
subject to the town picking up the full cost after 3
years which is coming to an end.
Loosing 12 personnel is the same as loosing 3 per
shift from a department that has a maximum of only
11 personnel on a shift to cover 3 of their 4
stations with basic 24 hour staffing. A
similar cut of 12 personnel in 1991 devastated the
department for years closing the Pocasset station
(the only staffed station south of the canal) and
the Sagamore station to the east. Response times to
some calls increased from as few as 2 or 3 minutes
to 15 or 20 minutes or more in some cases during
At best Bourne has a Deputy, Lieutenant, and 3
Firefighter/Paramedics at Station 1, a Lieutenant
and 2 firefighters at Station 3, and the same at
Station 4. Often less personnel are on duty due to
scheduled leaves, illnesses or injuries with a
minimum of only 9 personnel on duty in town.
The department has already cut 1/3 of the Lieutenant
positions out of the budget and routinely only
maintains 2 personnel at Station 3.
Bourne responds to approximately 4,600+ emergency
calls annually, more than 2 times as many calls as
they handled in 1992 (1,753 calls). Many of
these calls occur simultaneously which can greatly
increase response times to medical emergencies
throughout the town. Loss of personnel or
closing of stations would make it difficult for the
town to provide the most basic emergency services to
PLYMOUTH FIRE DEPARTMENT
The Plymouth Fire Department lost one of its own on
October 20, 2015. Plymouth Firefighter Anthony
Colarusso, age 39, passed from a battle with

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,
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
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.
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
