Hyannis Plans for New
Headquarters Fire Station
 

Hyannis Fire District voters rejected the March 5, 2014 vote for the
new fire headquarters.  A majority of voters, 210 voted in favor with
169 against, yet the proposed $19.8 Million station failed to meet the
2/3 required to approve the new station. Hyannis will review its
options for what everyone agrees is a need. 

HYANNIS CONTINUES TO REFINE PLANS FOR A PROPOSED
NEW HYANNIS HEADQUARTERS

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

 

 

Carver Approves New HQ


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.

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

 

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.

Chatham Approves New
Headquarters Fire Station

CHATHAM FIRE HEADQUARTERS
In May 2012 Chatham voters rejected a $9.5 million proposed fire headquarters to replaced
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.

Brewster Proposing a
New Headquarters Station

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.

On April 27, 1937, three firefighters were killed in the woods in Sandwich
in a large forest fire.  A memorial on the side of Route 130 commemorates
