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

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,

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.

SOME OF YOUR GREAT COMMENTS
Great to hear from you!
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!
ABHAN Guarino, Michael
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
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
THE BEST COMPREHENSIVE FIRE WEB SITE I'VE SEEN AND I'VE SEEN A
THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST SITE IN ALL ASPECTS TO A LOCAL FIRE

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.

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!!
Bob Smith, Horsham, PA
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.
Love the supersite. I've been
listening all day in Germany. Its
really fun. Yarmouth police responded to a residential alarm and
here the actual alarm going off over the broadcast of the police
AWESOME. Keep up the great job on the website...
Sr A John D.
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.
THANKS FROM ALL OVER
