Bourne Fire Station


BOURNE "SOUTH STATION"
Planned
A Fire Station Committee is working on a future new "South Side" Fire Station
to replace the present Monument Beach Station 2 (left) and Pocasset Station 4
(right) both of which are very outdated and undersized. A new station would
likely be built on town owned property, in the Pocasset village area, allowing
for proper protection of the area south of the Canal from a single staffed fire station.
Updated September 2018
 

Harwich Fire Station

EAST HARWICH STATION 2
Under Construction
 
EAST HARWICH FIRE STATION 2
The Harwich Fire Department was given the go ahead at the May 7, 2018
Town Meeting to construct a new $6.8 Million East Harwich Fire Station.
The present station built in 1976 will remain open while a new 3 bay
station will be built on the same lot facing Route 39 (Orleans-Harwich Rd)
essentially just south and east of the current station.  The additional space
will provide for additional apparatus room and living quarters.
When done the old station will be torn down.
Construction began in the Summer of 2018.
U/D September 2018

Hyannis Fire Headquarters



HYANNIS FIRE HEADQUARTERS
Construction in Progress

NEW HYANNIS FIRE HEADQUARTERS
Funding for the new Hyannis Fire Headquarters was approved on April 9, 2017.
The $18.5 Million project will replace the 1965 fire station which will eventually
be torn down once Phase I of the project is completed and apparatus and personnel
can be moved next door to the new facility.
  
Ground was broken on the new Hyannis Fire Headquarters on May 8, 2017.
The new 33,000 square foot station is being built next to the present station
in two phases.  The first phase will build 4 double deep drive thru bays
and the offices / living facilities.  Once completed, the department will
move in and the old station will be torn down making room for Phase II
which will add 3 additional bays and a repair shop building. The project
is projected to cost $18.5 million and is expected to be completed by
the end of 2018.

Nantucket Fire Headquarters

Architects rendering of future fire station

Planning in Progress  

NANTUCKET FIRE HEADQUARTERS

Nantucket voters approved a $2.9 Million supplemental funding package
in November 2017 to be added to the previously approved $15 Million
allowing construction of a new Fire Headquarters to begin at the public
safety facility on Fairgrounds Road next to the Police Station.

The present Nantucket FD station was built in 1980 at Pleasant St &
Sparks Ave. replacing the old station in the congested center of town.
The department has outgrown the present station and had no room
for expansion on site.

In 2008 the town sought a full police and fire public safety facility
but only approved the funds for the police and communications
aspect of the station at that time.

 

 

Onset New Headquarters


Planning in Progress

ONSET FIRE HEADQUARTERS

FUTURE ONSET FIRE HEADQUARTERS
Onset Fire District voters approved an $8 Million future fire headquarters
station to be built on Sand Pond Road across from the current water district
building (FD Station 2). The original proposal was for approximately
$13.9 Million, but the May 15, 2017 meeting reduced the approved amount.

The present fire headquarters is at 5 East Central Ave in the center of Onset.
That station was built in 1950 next to the original fire station dating back to the
early 1900's. The current station provides for housing 6 apparatus, but was
not big enough for the department's new 2015 ladder truck which had to be
housed at the water department's facility.

Construction is expected to begin in 2018.

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:
