Barnstable New Boat


Boat 219
The Barnstable Fire Department has acquired a larger rescue boat. The 27' Boston Whaler

Barnstable's Pickup Repainted


C200
The department's 1991 GMC pickup truck C-200 recently had some bodywork done and a new paint job at the Cape Cod Tech school. It came back recently with new red, white, white paint job. 11/2000


C201
The Chief is driving a 2000 Ford LTD Crown Victoria 4 door sedan, color red. Like many of the new chief cars, it has no roof light, but instead uses the "unmarked" strobe package.
E202
In late 1999/early 2000, the Barnstable FD got approval for and made Engine 202 a fully licensed ALS Pumper. It serves not only as the departments "heavy rescue unit' but can also provide advanced life support until a mutual aid ambulance arrives to transport should Barnstable's ambulance be committed elsewhere.
C210
The Barnstable Fire Department hired a full-time Deputy Chief in 1999. He is presently driving a 1999 Chevy Suburban originally purchased as a backup rescue vehicle designated as "200". This is a sharp looking vehicle and is getting much more use as a deputy vehicle.
