Hyannis Pays Respect

HUNDREDS OF FIREFIGHTERS
Firefighters, family, and friends from far and wide have come to pay respect to
Hyannis Captain Thomas Kenney, age 65, who passed away June 5, 2019 from
occupational cancer just months after retiring from a 36+ year career as a Paramedic
Firefighter, officer, leader, mentor, and friend to so many. On Monday June 10, many
came to Hyannis to say thank you to "TK" and his family for sharing his knowledge
and love for his job with so many people. Tomorrow, June 11, 2019 the funeral
will be held at Our Lady of Victory church in Centerville.

These types of events recognize the tragic and sad reality of life and death,
which Captain Kenney dealt with every day of the career he chose and loved
up to, and probably beyond, his retirement. He earned every bit of respect he
enjoyed throughout his career and would fully enjoy seeing and greeting all
of those who are coming out to say good by to a very special person.

Firefighters, and others, tend to rejoice in seeing old friends, remembering
special moments, and sharing good memories. Sadly, this often comes at
times like these which draw us all together.  TK attended many, many
funerals for brothers and sisters over the years. He honored life and
all those who made a difference. The outpouring of love and respect
for him is so fitting.

More to come.

Rest in Peace Captain Kenney.

OBITUARY

 

 ~ REST IN PEACE ~


 
RETIRED HYANNIS CAPTAIN THOMAS KENNEY
It is with deepest regret that we announce the Line of Duty passing of
recently retired Hyannis Captain/Paramedic Thomas Kenney, age 65,
on June 5, 2019 after a brief battle with Cancer.

Captain Kenney came from Boston EMS where he was among the first
trained Paramedics. He came to the Hyannis Fire Department in 1982
and served for 36 years - 9 months - and 12 days doing the job he loved
so much. He was a founding member of the MA-TF1 FEMA Urban Search
& Rescue Team and was among the first in to New York on September 11, 2001.
His love for teaching EMS, heavy rescue, and firefighting was infamous.

He retired on October 19, 2018
having worked his entire career as a Paramedic, serving as an EMS Officer,
Lieutenant, and Training Captain. He was a long time and proud member of the
Hyannis FD Honor Guard. His fire service roots go back through his father and
grandfather who served the City of Boston.

He is survived by his loving wife Kathy, daughters Meaghann and Lauren,
grand daughter Flynn, his brothers, and many, many friends who will miss
his knowledge, humor, leadership, friendship, and love.

Hyannis Fire Station

Oct 19, 2018

HYANNIS FIRE HEADQUARTERS

(Opened in 2018)

The Hyannis Fire Department approved a new $18.5 Million Fire Headquarters
in April 2016. The new station, to be located on the same site at
95 High School Road Ext. as the previous station, will be built in 2 phases
keeping the old station open to enable un-interrupted operations.

Ground was broken May 8, 2017 on the first phase of the 33,000 sq ft
station including administrative and living areas and the first 4 bays
for apparatus.  The HYFD moved into the station Oct 17, 2018.

Phase 2 included razing of the 1965 previous station to make room
for additional apparatus bays expected to be completed in 2019.

Bourne Fire Station

Bourne Fire Stations 2 & 4

BOURNE FIRE STATION

(Planning)

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.

BOURNE POLICE STATION

(Under Construction)

The Town of Bourne is currently building a new Police Station
on Armory Road in Buzzards Bay. The new station will replace the
present 60 year old police station at 175 Main Street.

The $18 Million facility was approved in October 2016.
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.

HARWICH FIRE STATION 2

(Under Construction)

The new East Harwich Fire Station #2 is under construction.
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 will have 3 drive thru bays.
Once completed, the 1976 station will be torn down.

If voters approve funding, the station would be built next to the Police

station. The new station will be at 15 Hedge Road just east of Court St.

The property has been cleared and preparations are under way to
build a proper new station. The new station is planned to be three
bays, double deep, allowing for an Engine, Brush Breaker, Ambulance,

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.
