in service covering the Cape Cod area. The unit is currently
housed in the East Harwich Fire Station and will likely
respond to many fires and incidents to come.
July 2021


 


HYANNIS UPDATE

HYANNIS NUMBERING
Those who have been following Hyannis recently are aware that
the department uses a computerized voice CAD dispatch program
to dispatch calls. In conjunction, ambulances were renumbered
essentially with the newest being A-1 (right) and the oldest being
A-4 (left). Typically A-1 gets the first call. A-2 the next, etc...
County numbers are still used on mutual aid, but no longer
displayed on the exterior of the vehicles. Instead, placards
bearing the unit's assignment that particular day are used.
Shop ID numbers bearing the unit's original county number
and year are used for tracking the actual vehicle over time.
A-1 (831) = Shop ID 8252019
A-2 (832) = Shop ID 8282017
A-3 (833) = Shop ID 8312015
A-4 (834) = Shop ID 8272005

ENGINES RENUMBERED
With the recent delivery and placing in service of the newest Engine,
a 2021 Pierce Enforcer as "Engine 2" (822), the department did
a little renumbering with the engines similar to what they did with
the ambulances. The County radio numbers are no longer displayed
on the exterior of the engines. Instead, a placard system, similar
to the Ambulance system, displays a simple [2] [3] [4] or [6] on
the vehicle based on its assignment on a given day.

IN HONOR
of the 1927 Ahrens Fox "Engine 1" and 1949 Mack "Engine 5"
still maintained by Hyannis, those numbers have essentially
been retired as active vehicle numbers for decades.

The new Engine 2 (822) replaced the oldest 1992 Foam Engine 2,
"Any Time. Any Where. Any Job" across the front,
which has been retired. 

The remaining engines, have been reorganized to number them
in order by age, with the newer units having the lower numbers
similarly as the ambulances. Putting their BEST FIRST.

The 2011 Pierce Arrow - originally Engine 6 (826) is being
assigned the #2 role and is thus going to carry the [3] placard
effectively becoming Engine 3 (823).

The 2005 Pierce Arrow - originally Engine 3 (823), being the
third oldest, gets reassigned as Engine 4 (824?) with the [4]
placard. Hyannis has not had an Engine 4 for many, many
years. The last unit to carry Engine 4 was actually the old
Heavy Rescue when it first came in the 1980s before being
called Rescue 1.

Late last year, Hyannis picked up a used 1996 Pierce Engine
that started out in Cambridge as a Squirt and then served
the City of Chelsea for a number of years. This "new"
fourth Engine for Hyannis, being the oldest current engine,
gets the largest number [6] as Engine 6 (826).

For the score card....
Engine 2 (822) = Shop ID 8222021
Engine 3 (823) = Shop ID 8262011
Engine 4 (824) = Shop ID 8232005
Engine 6 (826) = Shop ID 8241996

HYANNIS ENGINE 6
The 1996 Pierce, formerly Cambridge/Chelsea, now in service
with Hyannis. The day the photo was taken, the future Engine 3 (823),
formerly Engine 6 (826), Shop ID 8262011, was out of service.
So the new Engine 4 (824?), Shop ID 8232005, was moved up
one position becoming [3] instead of [4] for a few days.
So naturally, the new Engine 6 (826), Shop ID 8241996,
(even though it was never actually ever officially Engine 824),
likewise moved into the Engine 4 [4] position, until Engine 4
goes back in service, and Engine 6 becomes Engine 6 again.

This may seem a little confusing, to some, but once everyone gets
used to it, and nothing goes out of service, it should be....
Well.... keep a score card.
I have to!

DISCLAIMER
I think I got it all correct.
But I'm not sure.
