Chatham FD Prepares to Move Out

Retired Chatham FD Deputy Richard Hunter looks over the
plans for the "old/present" Chatham Fire Headquarters. The
plans were found under the eves in the attic as members
picked through decades of history in preparation for their
move out of the old station this Fall.

The old Chatham station was built in the early 1950's and added onto a few times.
The Depot Street station will be torn down, along with adjacent structures to
make room for a new fire headquarters.

 

 

The "temporary" headquarters will be located within three trailers
and the DPW building on Crowell Road for the year or two that
it will take to build the new station.

"GIRLS RULE"

Congratulations to some of the female firefighters on Cape Cod
who have recently been promoted to officer positions.
Lieutenant Leighanne Deering - Harwich Fire
Lieutenant Nicole Stanley - Mashpee Fire
Lieutenant Tammy Pimental - Sandwich Fire

Each are the first females within their respective departments
to be promoted to Lieutenants.

The Falmouth Fire Department promoted
Lieutenant Anne Bartos in March 2014.
She too became the first female Lieutenant in
her department.

Woman are by no means a new thing for fire departments
on Cape Cod. Some of the first fulltime female firefighters
and paramedics in the state were right here on Cape Cod.
A number of woman have served as officers including
Lieutenants and Captains.


For these and other promotions, some big retirements,
  and other happenings across the Cape...

Chatham Moves Out

THE CHATHAM FIRE DEPARTMENT
Moved out of their Depot Street home of the last 62 years
into temporary quarters in the DPW garage at 221 Crowell Road.
The old station is slated to be torn down soon to make room
for a new headquarters on the same site.
Sept 10, 2014

 

Carver Fire Headquarters



CARVER FIRE DEPARTMENT

The front (street side) elevation of the proposed new Carver Central Fire Station.
The apparatus bays will be double deep drive through coming out the left and right
sides of the rear of the building.

The $8.5 Million building will  be built on the current training facility property
up the street from the old station and will also include a state of the art training
facility. The old station would eventually be torn down allowing for the future
construction of a new Police facility.

The project was approved by voters in 2013.
 

CARVER FIRE HEADQUARTERS
Voters in Carver approved the construction of a new Central
Fire Headquarters and training facility at 99 Main Street
just up the street from the current station. The old station built
in the 1950s and added on to has been outgrown. The new
station will be built on a property owned by the department
as used as their training facility.
Nov 2013

 

Oak Bluffs Headquarters

 

OAK BLUFFS FIRE HEADQUARTERS
Voters in Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard approved the construction
of a new Fire Headquarters in 2014.

The present facility (shown above) will be torn down in the Fall of 2014
and apparatus will be relocated for about 1-1/2 years while a new fire
headquarters is built on the same site.

SEE OAK BLUFFS PLANS
 

 

Chatham Fire Headquarters

CHATHAM FIRE HEADQUARTERS

Construction on the new Chatham Fire Headquarters is expected
to begin in the Fall of 2014.

In May 2012 Chatham voters rejected a $9.5 million proposed fire headquarters
to replace the outgrown Depot Street station built in the 1950s.

The department went back to the drawing board to cut the size and costs of the building
in hopes of solving the needs of the department and the concerns of voters.

Chatham voters were presented with a 5000 square foot smaller station proposal
at an actually higher price tag and voted approval to build a new headquarters on
the same site as the present station.
The vote was held Oct 7, 2013.

 Chatham Fire Station Plans

 

 

 

Hyannis Plan Rejected
 

EARLIER HEADQUARTERS PROPOSAL

A July 1, 2014 vote by the Hyannis Fire District
once again fell just 8 votes short of passing the required
2/3 majority to approve despite a considerable reduction
in the size and cost of the proposed building.

Hyannis Fire District voters earlier rejected the proposal on March 5, 2014.
That vote was 210 in favor and 169 against, but it too failed to get the
2/3 required majority vote for a $19.8 Million station.

It is unclear what the district will do now with multiple
rejections on the badly needed replacement station.

SEE HYANNIS PLANS



The Hyannis Fire District has developed some plans for a proposed new fire headquarters
facility on their High School Road Ext. property. The station, if approved, would replace
the current station built in 1965.  The once spacious current headquarters has become
cramped as the department experienced the tremendous growth in calls from about 500
in 1965 to over 6,000 annually currently. Only a few personnel were housed in the station
when built, and now 12 on a shift and several day personnel share cramped quarters.
Apparatus is also significantly different today from what it once was.
The new facility would be built to provide the necessary services currently demanded
as well as addressing future needs of the community.

September 2013 Update

 

Nantucket Looks at New
Fire Headquarters

NANTUCKET FIRE STATION
A few years ago Nantucket voters considered building a new combined
fire - police Public Safety Building. The plan changed and the fire department
was not included when the Police Department built their new station on
Fairgrounds Road. Now, the Nantucket Fire Department is apparently
revisiting the option of building at that facility. The present NFD
Station on Pleasant Street has been outgrown for years.
See Dec 2013 Article.

Nantucket Fire Station

 


Brewster Plans Headquarters

BREWSTER FIRE STATION
The Brewster Fire Station built in 1974 as a combination Fire / Police station
has been outgrown for years. The police department moved out years ago
into their own facility. Now the Brewster FD hopes to develop plans and get
funding to build a new station behind this old station in the next few years.
Plot limitations make additions or renovations to the current building impractical.

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.

"World Trade Center 2001"
I took this photo of the World Trade Center in the summer of 2001
just weeks before the September 11, 2001 collapse of the twin towers.
The family visited the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building that
trip, figuring we could always do the WTC another time. Little did we know....

God Bless the USA!
