Joint Base Cape Cod Fire

OCTOBER 28, 2016
Barnstable Sheriff's Department Dispatcher Joe Gibbs was getting off duty
at about 23:30 on Oct 28, 2016 and was driving away from the communications center
at the Joint Base Cape Cod Fire Headquarters when he saw a glow in the sky.
He called in the fire which involved about nine construction type trailers used
as office and storage space. Gusty winds and limited staffing prevented crews
from saving thousands of toys stockpiled by the Cape Cod Military Support
Foundation, Inc. that were to be distributed to children at the annual
Christmas Party on the base.

Mutual aid from several departments assisted JBCC FD in controlling
the fire which destroyed the structures.

CHATHAM FIRE HEADQUARTERS
The new Chatham Fire Headquarters opened on May 24, 2016.
The new station is located on the site of the former station at

another smaller bay.  The building has all the department offices,
communications, and living quarters for personnel.

The department operated out of the DPW garage on Crowell Rd
since Sept 2014 when the old station was torn down.

Sandwich Approves New
Police & Fire Station

 

FORESTDALE FIRE STATION 3 TO BE REPLACED

 

Voters in Sandwich have approved construction of a new Police Station
to be built on the town owned land at Quaker Meeting House and
Cotuit Road. 

In addition, a new Fire Station 3 will be constructed
on the same land to replace the Forestdale Station presently on Rte 130.
The fire station is substantially smaller than what was originally proposed
a couple years ago, but will provide facilities that the present Station 3
does not have.

The May 2, 2016 Town Meeting also approved funds to add onto
the East Sandwich Station 2 providing living space that the present
station has never had in anticipation for future staffing of that station.

The present Headquarters is expected to remain in downtown
substantially as is.

The town sought an additional 8 personnel to open the
East Sandwich station ASAP but funding was not approved.

 

 

Hyannis Approves Fire Station!

THANK YOU HYANNIS!
The Hyannis Fire Department has tried to get a new fire station
for several years.  Several previous votes failed to reach the
required 2/3 majority approval.

On April 9, 2016 Hyannis voters turned out to approve a new
fire station by 73%.  The new station, estimated at $18.5 Million
and approximately 33,000 sq ft will be built on district owned
land next the present station on High School Rd Ext.

It will replace the current station built in 1965 which has
been outgrown and has a list of problems that needed to be fixed.
 

 

 

Brewster Fire Station
APPROVED!

Brewster voters gave the go ahead to build a new $13.4 million
fire headquarters at the November 16, 2015 special town meeting. .
The new station will be approximately 22,000 square feet, with
5 drive through bays and facilities necessary for future operations.
It will be built behind the present station. Construction is expected
to begin in 2017.

 

 

 

Nantucket Fire Station

Nantucket Fire Department
Nantucket voters 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.

COMM FIRE DEPARTMENT
The COMM FD and many others in the Cape Cod area are deeply saddened by the very tragic death of Jordan Galvin-Juntas, age 19, on October 23, 2016. Jordan graduated from Barnstable High School in 2015. He had done an internship in his senior year with the department and showed great promise as a future firefighter. He was attending Ana Maria College in the Fire Science program. Jordan, his 20 year old cousin Kraig Diggs of Osterville, 19 year old Jordan Fisher of Harwich, and 18 year old Cory Licata of West Babylon, NY were in a car returning from the Cape to school at 12:11 AM on I-495 in Middleborough, MA when another car, driven by a 31 year old Fall River woman, heading the wrong way in the northbound lane ofI-495 struck the 4 students' car headon causing it to explode in fire. All 5 people were killed in the crash.  Jordan and the other young men were highly respected, good kids who had bright futures.

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, HOWEVER

    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 should work.

    SEE FREQS

   Go to RadioReference.com 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.

     This same 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
Tim
 CAPE COD Area Fire Radio   and Scott   CAPE COD Fire & Police Radio  who provide these services.

    The link for Cape Cod Area Fire Radio at the top of my Home Pages also brings your to this feature.
