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
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.

Bourne Fire Stations 2 & 4
BOURNE FIRE STATION
The Town of Bourne has a committee looking
into a solution to the
"south side" fire stations issue. Currently the old Monument
Fire Station #2 is a call station and is really not designed for
apparatus or staffing. The Pocasset Fire Station #4 is also
barely sufficient for modern apparatus. It has been staffed
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
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
cover the town.

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,
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

with what you want to listen to.

not already aware, you can also listen to the action online as well.
