Falmouth Fire Station 4

WEST FALMOUTH WILL CLOSE IN 2020

The West Falmouth Fire Station, built in the 1930s, has been a "1 man station" for
many years.  Barely able to house a single modern pumper, the station has been
frequently closed in recent years when no apparatus that could fit in the station
was available.  The announcement that the station will be closed next year has
been made public.  The hope for a replacement station or combining the
West Falmouth and North Falmouth stations will be assessed.
October 2019

PLYMOUTH CLOSES STATION 7

PLYMOUTH STATION 7 CLOSED
In an unexpected, unplanned move, Plymouth FD has had to close their oldest
Fire Station, Station 7 in North Plymouth, on November 6, 2019, when a
chunk of the concrete apparatus floor fell into the basement, making in
unsafe to park apparatus in the station.

The "new" North Plymouth Station 7, scheduled to replace this old station,
 is under construction, but not planned to open until next year.

Currently both Station 1 and 7 are closed to normal operations
resulting in potential response time issues.  Efforts are underway
to get stations repaired and reopened when possible.

PLYMOUTH FIRE HEADQUARTERS ISSUES

More on Plymouth Fire Department Headquarters

PLYMOUTH FIRE HEADQUARTERS
(Emergency Renovations 2019)

The Plymouth Fire Headquarters Station 1 was opened back in 1978
at 114 Sandwich Street. It is home to Fire Department administrative
offices and the Dispatch center. Engine 1, Tower 1, Battalion Chief,
Spare Engine 8, Breaker 179, Special Forestry Engine 8-1, and
various other equipment call this home.

The station has been in need of general maintenance and repairs for years
but has repeatedly been put off for various reasons. In October 2019,
roof repairs were undertaken. During the work, a significant roof and
ceiling failure resulted in a major contamination of the station making
it uninhabitable. The department had to take emergency actions to
salvage and maintain what operations they could.

A trailer was placed on the property for firefighters to live in while
repairs are made.
The Tower 1 apparatus and personnel were relocated to Station 2.
 
Administrative offices were ultimately moved to the Cedarville Fire Station 6
which is the location of the Emergency Operations Center.

It is unclear when the department may be able to re-inhabit the station.

There had been discussion town wide prior to this event to
potentially relocate the Headquarters to 91 Long Pond Road
or another appropriate site at some time in the future.

Future East Harwich Fire Station 2

HARWICH FIRE STATION 2
(Dedicated Nov 2019)

The new East Harwich Fire Station #2 at 4064 Orleans Road (Rte 39)
was dedicated in a ceremony on Nov 30, 2019.
Punch list items are being addressed prior to the full move
expected by New Years.
.
Funding for the $6.8 Million, 9,750 sq ft station was approved
in May 2018.  Studies had looked at renovating and adding on
to the old station, but ultimately a new station was most practical.

The station is located on Orleans-Harwich Road (Route 39)
just south of the present station at the intersection on Rte 137.
The new station has 3 drive thru bays.
Once completed, the 1976 station will be torn down.

Ground was broken on May 8, 2017.
The new station was built on the same site as the previous 1965 station
at 95 High School Road Ext. The administrative and living quarters,
along with 4 double deep bays were built first allowing the department
to remain in operation from the old station until moving into the
new station on October 17, 2018.

The old station was then torn down and the final phase begun.
The entire project was completed in October 2019.

SANDWICH FIRE STATION 3
(Opened September 2019)

The Town of Sandwich voted in May 2016 to upgrade both fire and
police facilities within the town. It started with a renovation of the
1970's unstaffed Fire Station 2 in East Sandwich. That phase was completed
and the newly staffed Station 2 opened in June 2018.

Then, construction of a new Police Station and replacement for Fire Station 3
in Forestdale began. The Police station opened in Summer 2019.

The new Station 3, which includes headquarters offices,
opened at 251 Cotuit Road in September 2019.

Bourne Fire Station

Bourne Fire Stations 2 & 4

BOURNE FIRE STATION
(Planning Stage)

The Town of Bourne has a committee looking into a solution to the
"south side" fire stations issue.  Currently the old Monument Beach
Fire Station #2 is a call station and is really not designed for larger
apparatus or staffing.  The Pocasset Fire Station #4 is also old and
barely sufficient for modern apparatus.  It has been staffed for years.
Both are in need of replacement.

The discussion to date has been on where land might be available
to build a single new fire station which would replace Stations 2 and 4.
A piece of land on County Road has had favorable recommendations
but the process has looked at several locations.

Bourne has 4 stations currently, two north of the canal both staffed, and
two south of the canal, 1 staffed. Traffic and geographical issues
require properly located and staffed stations on both sides of the canal to
cover the town.

It will be approximately 29,000 sq ft

Ground was broken on Sept 19, 2018 and construction begun
soon after.  It should be completed in 2019.

NEW ONSET FIRE STATION
(Approved 2017)

The site of the new station has been cleared and prepared for future construction
as of Dec 2019.

The Onset Fire District voters approved a new fire station on May 15, 2017.
The proposed $13.9 M request was amended at the meeting approving only
$8 Million for the project, forcing the plans to go back to the drawing board.

The new station is planned for a plot near the water department facility
on Sand Pond Road north of Route 6. 

The present station has been in the heart of Onset village forever.
The 5 Central Ave station was built in 1950 next to the older
original station. The station has 6 bays, but is not well suited for
larger apparatus including the departments most recent ladder truck.

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 Broadcastify.

For Fire Departments Only try the CapeCodFD.com feed at Broadcastify:
Barnstable, Dukes, Nantucket, and Plymouth Counties Fire Departments.
On air since Dec 2016.
