Fire Department History

The Otis Fire Department protects the property within the Massachusetts Military Reservation and Otis Air National Guard Base.  These areas have been called numerous other names including Camp Edwards and Otis Air Force Base. The base was constructed around 1941 to meet the needs of WWII.  The fire department and crash fire apparatus provided protection from several stations at the busy military base, reported to have some of the best runways on the east coast.  Otis is a designated emergency landing strip for the NASA shuttle program.

New headquarters fire station opened August 22, 2007. Old crash station and housing station closed.

Otis dispatching taken over by Barnstable County Sheriff's Dept dispatchers in the Otis station in Dec 2007.

Sept 28, 2008 - The Otis Fire Department becomes the Massachusetts Military Reservation
Fire Department under control of Massachusetts rather that the federal government.

Fires and Incidents
1986 - Mar 31 - A huge forest fire burned approximately 2,000 acres in a two mile long area near south of the "impact area" in the base training area.  Flames over 100' high were battled by some 200 firefighters from 14 towns using some 30 brush breakers and support apparatus.
1986 - April 20 - 700 acres were burned in the second major fire in a month, occuring north of the impact area.  17 brush breakers and military helicopters fought the fire over 24 hours.
1988 - April 22 - Another major forest fire in the area of the PAVE PAWS military radar site burned about 1600 acres.

Note:  The run cards above are a partial listing provided for quick reference only.  Additional coverage assignments for other fire departments were left off for simplicity purposes.  These run cards are in effect as of the date posted with them.  It is interesting to use the run cards to track and compare the flow of apparatus to fires in various parts of town.  It is important to remember that these cards reflect resources available when they were written.  Additional apparatus, changes in station assignments, staffing issues, and individual department policies may have changed since these cards were written.  This may  have an effect on the actual apparatus response to incidents when they occur.
