Our Mission

Contact Us

Welcome to CapeCodFD.com
     CapeCodFD.com went online on September 11, 2000. Our mission is to be the single most comprehensive resource providing information, images, and news about the  fire / rescue departments serving the Cape Cod & Islands area of southeastern Massachusetts, USA.
     We hope that this site will meet or exceed your expectations. If so, you may find that it can serve as a daily hub from which to find whatever you need to know about the fire rescue service in the Cape Cod area and beyond.
     The site continues to grow and evolve to serve you better. Your questions, observations, corrections, contributions, and general comments are always welcome so please send us an E-Mail.

An Unofficial Website
     CapeCodFD.com is a privately owned and operated website. There is no such thing as the "Cape Cod Fire Department." The area is served by many different independent fire departments and agencies. This is NOT an official site for any of those departments.
     While it is our intent to always bring you the most accurate, informative, and useful information, we can't guarantee that. The information and content within this site is therefore the sole responsibility of CapeCodFD.com and not the fire departments or agencies themselves.
     For official information or services, we recommend you contact the specific department directly and they will gladly serve you.

    Stay Safe. See you again soon!

     CapeCodFD.com added a Cape Cod Area Fire Departments Live Radio Feed in Dec 2016.

SOME OF YOUR GREAT COMMENTS

Great to hear from you!

Britt

I am currently part of the forward deployed aircraft carrier USS KITTY HAWK stationed in Japan. I have been away from home for over a year and about a half now. I have just recently been given orders to go fight the war on terror in Afghanistan. I was residing in the town of Bourne, MA where I had done a day long observation with the fire fighting team and EMS. I have been an aspiring firefighter since I was born. I love what you have done with this web site it has been a moral booster on those six month deployments on the water and knowing that the job that these firefighters have been doing to keep my family and community safe has been fantastic. I wanted to give you big thanks. Keep up this great web site!

Hi Britt,

 
Just wanted to share with you about my special boy.  Our son Chad is 8 years old and has Asperger's Syndrome, a high functioning form of Autism.  Since he was about 1 year old he has been "into" fire trucks. He has only grown to love them and all that goes with it as he gets older.
 
I don't know how I discovered your web site, but needless to say it is the motivation I  needed to get him to school lately.  He really hates going and the teachers are becoming more insistent he not talk about firefighting.  So each morning before he leaves for school we come to your web site and are going thru each state.  He gets to pick a couple favorites which I print for him and he takes them to school.  We give them to his teacher (he's in special ed.) and when he completes reading or math he gets to spend a few minutes relaxing and looking at them.
 
He is also into the old Emergency show and watches an episode or 2 daily.  He also likes Adam 12.  He and his Dad play each night at bedtime the they are Roy & Johnny! 
 
Well Britt, this is longer than I planned but I just wanted you to know the joy you have brought our little boy.  Thanks so much.

Britt,

 
I am currently doing a 1 year tour at Ali Al Salem Air Base in Kuwait.  You have a great website and I just wanted to wish all my fellow brother and sister firefighters from the Cape & Islands a Merry Christmas and a safe New Year.  Keep up the great work you all do!  Thanks.

Britt,

 
I have seen many, many websites and when I came across yours today I just had to tell you this is by far the best FD site I have accessed.  You website should be the "standard" for all large FD sites, it is so easy to navigate and it contains so much info. Keep up the good work!!

Britt,

Man, what can I say except AWESOME website!!  I could not believe the amount of information you have collected.  I am a firefighter/EMT here in Virginia.  I am also a dispatcher for the county, dispatching police/fire/ems.  I have always wanted to do a site for our fire/rescue departments like you have done for your area. 

Sincerely,

David Morgan  


Britt,

Love the supersite. I've been listening all day in Germany. Its really fun. Yarmouth police responded to a residential alarm and I could here the actual alarm going off over the broadcast of the police officer.
AWESOME. Keep up the great job on the website...

Sr A John D. McPherson


Britt,

I think the word is WOW! You have done a fantastic job assembling this site. I came in looking to trade patches and stayed as long as I could looking at just a few of the elements that you have put together. I'll be back.
