CapeCodFD.com first went on the internet on September 11, 2000.
One year later, September 11, 2001, was a day we will always remember for something other than the one year anniversary of CapeCodFD.com.
Over the first five years, this website has been built and updated and built some more. We continue to try to keep it up to date as much as possible, but that is a big task so it is constantly in progress.
The site is privately owned and operated. It is not an "official" website of any fire department. We try to provide good information about all 40 something fire rescue departments in the southeastern, Massachusetts (Cape & Islands) area. This site is meant to be used as a resource for information and images about the departments. If you know of information that needs to be changed, updated, or has things like spelling problems or typos, please let us know. We want it to be accurate, up to date, and complete.
One of the challenges with a large website is making format changes. There can be a lot of work involved and changes can be time consuming. I have not been happy with the time it took for the home page to load and many people may have not stuck around long enough to enjoy the site because of that. So, I am introducing a new Home Page scheme that I hope will overcome some of those problems.
The new Home Page is being introduced as part of the 5th Anniversary Renovation for September 11, 2005. You will notice the Home Page has been broken into several smaller pieces. I hope this helps the page load faster and helps you find things you are looking for. You will notice that many of the 'old' pages will load up into the new format. As time permits, some of those pages will be changed as well. Hopefully everything will work smoothly. If not, thanks for your patience.
Enjoy the new format. Please let me know what you think via emails. Celebrate our 5th Anniversary on September 11, 2005 and keep coming back for more. Stay safe. God Bless. Never Forget W6 and FDNY343.
