Hyannis Approves Fire Station!
THANK YOU HYANNIS!
The Hyannis Fire Department has tried to get a new fire station
for several years. Several previous votes failed to reach the
required 2/3 majority approval.
On April 9, 2016 Hyannis voters
turned out to approve a new
fire station by 73%. The new station, estimated at $18.5
and approximately 33,000 sq ft will be built on district owned
land next the present station on High School Rd Ext.

Oak Bluffs Fire Station
The new Oak Bluffs
Fire Station has been completed and the department
moved into the new $8.3 Million, 20,000+ square foot, 12 bay station
on December 6, 2015. The station is located on the site of the
station at Wing Road and County Road. Construction took just 1 year
while the department worked out of the DPW garage and other
quarters. The station has been dedicated the Nelson W. Amaral
Station in memory of the retired chief who served the department for
54 years, 34 as chief. The station is equipped with essential
living, classroom, and other space that the previous station lacked.
Voters in Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard approved the

Brewster voters gave the go
ahead to build a new $13.4 million
fire headquarters at the November 16, 2015 special town meeting. .
The new station will be approximately 22,000 square feet, with
5 drive through bays and facilities necessary for future operations.
It will be built behind the present station. Construction is expected
to begin in 2017.
approved approximately $15 Million
in April 2015 to construct a new fire station at the
Fairgrounds Road location of the Nantucket Police station.
The town had sought to fund a
full public safety complex
including fire, police, and communications in 2008,
but funding was only approved for the police and radio
communications at that time.
The present Nantucket Fire
Station was built in 1980
at Pleasant St & Sparks Ave. It replaced the old fire
station in the congested center of town.
Nantucket has grown
significantly since the station
was built in 1980. Increased demands for service
and a station that has been full for years, and the
inability to expand on site have led to the need
to move off site and start new.
In addition to the central
station, Nantucket also has two
small unstaffed stations in Siasconset and Madaket.
The department has 5 personnel on a shift with a
minimum of 3 personnel on duty.
It operates 5 pumpers, 1 aerial, 2 tankers,
1 heavy rescue, 3 ambulances, and a number
of support units.

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
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.
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
