Nantucket Headquarters

FIRST LOOK AT NEW NANTUCKET FIRE STATION
The new Nantucket Fire Headquarters was completed and occupied
on November 21, 2019. A visit and tour on December 23,2019 of the new
station is included in a new feature NANTUCKET FIRE HEADQUARTERS.
Jan 5, 2020

 

NANTUCKET FIRE STATION
(Opened Nov 2019)

The Nantucket Fire Department's new fire station was finally occupied
on November 21, 2019.

It had been under construction since 2018.
The $15 Million station was finally approved in 2015.  It will be located
at 4 Fairgrounds Road next to the Police station.

Construction got under way in 2018 on the station which has
6 double deep drive thru bays and additional office and living space.

The new station replaced the former station at 131 Pleasant St &
Sparks Ave built in 1980.

 

Harwich Fire Station 2

New East Harwich Fire Station 2

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 (Route 39)
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.

~ PROJECTS ~

 

Bourne Fire Station

Bourne Fire Stations 2 & 4

BOURNE FIRE STATION
(Planning Stage)

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

BOURNE POLICE STATION
(Under Construction 2018)

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.

Dennis Fire Dept

DENNIS FIRE STATION 2
(Proposed 2020)



The Town of Dennis is looking to replace the 63 year old North Dennis
Fire Station 2 on Old Bass Road near Route 6A. The small 2 bay station
has gone from an un-staffed, call station not long ago, to being a staffed station
with 5 personnel on duty in recent years.

The old station is not located in the best location for covering its district
 and the town. The proposed new station will be located at 350 Paddocks Path
closer to the middle of its district. The new station will be larger to facilitate
the personnel and apparatus into the future.

Dennis anticipates seeking funding in Spring 2020 to move forward on
replacing the old station with a new modern facility.

(Approved 2019)

Mattapoisett Town Meeting approved a $9.27 override 443 - 5
to build a new fire station for the Town of Mattapoisett on May 14, 2019.
The final approval will go before voters in an election on May 21, 2019.
If voters approve funding, the station would be built next to the Police
Station and will replace the very tight present station.

Onset Fire Station

Proposed Onset Fire Station
 

NEW ONSET FIRE STATION
(Approved 2017)

The site of the new station has been cleared and prepared for future construction
as of Dec 2019.

The Onset Fire District voters approved a new fire station on May 15, 2017.
The proposed $13.9 M request was amended at the meeting approving only
$8 Million for the project, forcing the plans to go back to the drawing board.

The new station is planned for a plot near the water department facility
on Sand Pond Road north of Route 6. 

The present station has been in the heart of Onset village forever.
The 5 Central Ave station was built in 1950 next to the older
original station. The station has 6 bays, but is not well suited for
larger apparatus including the departments most recent ladder truck.

PLYMOUTH FIRE STATION 7
(Under Construction)

The old North Plymouth Fire Station 7 was built over 107 years ago
in the days or horse drawn apparatus. Newer apparatus barely fits into the old station.

Recently, Plymouth purchased a property not far from the 0 Spooner St 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,
a spare engine, and a future ladder truck.

The new station is taking shape with a plan to move in June 2020
which is particularly important since the Spooner Street station 7
was permanently closed Nov 7, 2019.

BARNSTABLE CMED
Cape Cod was the first to have an EMS Radio system (BARNSTABLE C-MED) in Massachusetts way back around 1975 or so. The C-MED system was operated by the Barnstable Sheriff's Department from the beginning, with a single dispatcher serving as an operator/coordinator connecting ambulances (EMTs and Paramedics) via radio to the 4 hospitals within the system (CCH, FAL, TOB, MVH).

Early paramedics required direct radio contact with hospital RNs and MDs to get permission to perform certain skills or administer any medications. Communications was a vital part of providing care and a Priority (1, 2, or 3) system was established so that most critical (Priority 1) communications got the immediate attention that was needed to provide advanced level care.

The initial system included 4 UHF radio towers geographically located to provide the best radio signal at the time. The closer an ambulance was to a particular radio tower, the better the signal. The CMED operator could manually select the tower to use based on a geographical radio numbering reference plan.

When established, ambulances were assigned "300 series" radio ID numbers in a sequence starting with Bourne (304) and proceeding department by department down the Cape to Provincetown (376). Because the system was known as the Cape & Islands EMS System, it also included Martha's Vineyard and several departments in Plymouth County that use Tobey Hospital. At the time, some numbering IDs were intentionally left blank in anticipation that over time some departments might add ambulances.

As time went by, many more ambulances were in fact added and coming up with radio numbers in the geographical sequence plan started to be a challenge. In addition to using most of the 300 series numbers, a series of 400 numbers were also added.  With advances in technology, the radio system improved and the best radio signal could eventually be determined by the radio itself, rather than counting on the CMED operator. In addition, protocols changed dramatically over the years allowing highly trained paramedics to initiate and work deep into care plans before having to contact hospitals and rarely to seek permission from MDs via radio.

Recently, for one or more reasons, the use of the "CMED RADIO NUMBER SYSTEM" has been discontinued in favor of simply using the Fire Department or Agency vehicle radio number. This change took place in March 2020.

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.

For Fire Departments Only try the CapeCodFD.com feed at Broadcastify:
Barnstable, Dukes, Nantucket, and Plymouth Counties Fire Departments.
On air since Dec 2016.
