HYANNIS 5TH ALARM

HYANNIS HARBOR HOTEL
The Hyannis Fire Department received an automatic fire alarm for
the Hyannis Harbor Hotel at 213 Ocean Street at about 14:30 hrs
on Sunday April 25, 2021. Car 3, Engine 6, and Tower 1 responded
and had NOTHING SHOWING on arrival. The hotel was occupied.
Temperatures in the 40's with rain and a brisk wind.

Upon investigation, a light smoke condition was encountered in
the basement. The full 1st Alarm assignment was transmitted.
Conditions quickly changed and a Working Fire was struck,
quickly followed by a 2nd Alarm as smoke thickened.

The fire had gone up through the walls and into the attic
cockloft space where it intensified and soon burned through
the roof. Heavy smoke conditions and large volumes of fire
spread quickly and it looked as though the fire would spread
uncontrolled. Additional help came with 3rd, 4th, and 5th
Alarm assignments being struck.

Heavy fire was observed coming through the roof from the street side
while thick smoke obscured much of the building as firefighters
setup 2 Tower Ladders and the COMM Aerial ladder pipe
on the rear parking lot side of the building.

-------

Of note: The response to this fire included at least 9 departments
to the fire including Hyannis, COMM, Yarmouth, Barnstable,
West Barnstable, Cotuit, Dennis, Mashpee, and Sandwich.

The vacancies in fire stations that came to the scene are usually
refilled by coverage / move-up assignments by other departments.
This fire activated 19 or the 20 Cape Cod fire departments
(only missing Provincetown) and at least 4 departments from
Plymouth County. Some apparatus made multiple moves to
meet the needs of the entire County.

Also of interest, the Providence Canteen Service provided a
truck to rehab and serve firefighters once the work was done.

-----

The Hyannis Harbor Hotel at 213 Ocean Street is no stranger to fires.
Back on August 23, 1995 at about 1430 hours when it was known as
the Hyannis Harborview Hotel, a 4 Alarm Fire heavily damaged
the 3 story section of the hotel. At least 1 firefighter was injured.

Once again, on the evening of November 28, 2016, fire
struck the building going to a 3rd Alarm.

~ 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.

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. 

The future site at 350 Paddocks Path.

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.

NEW ONSET FIRE STATION
(Under Construction)

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.

The station was not built for current or future staffing and lacks important facilities
and space for training on site. Additionally, the building has a number of issues
that need to be addressed for firefighter health and safety.

Falmouth Fire Alarm c.1929
Falmouth is one of the few towns on the Cape that ever
had a fire alarm system with the familiar red pull boxes
located throughout the community in case of fire.
Efforts have been underway to dismantle the system
and remove boxes. To date some 75 miles of Fire Alarm
cable and about 90% of boxes have been removed.
With cell phones, radio transmitted alarm systems, and
advancing technology, the fire alarm system has become
less necessary.

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.
