The Pocasset Fire Station 4 has been deemed unsafe to work out of. The main apparatus floor is over a basement and is no longer safe to park apparatus on. As a result, only 1 of 3 bays can be used for apparatus. The department has acquired a trailer to be used for living quarters that will be at the Monument Beach Station 2, along with the crew and units previously at Pocasset. . One engine, previously at Station 2, will be housed at Station 4. Oct 2021
A Study Committee had been looking to locate a new south side fire station in 2018.

Bourne Fire Station
 ~  Update ~

BOURNE FIRE DEPARTMENT
With the recent forced closing of the Pocasset Fire Station #4, the South of the Canal
crew has been moved into the old Monument Beach Fire Station #2 (re-designated #4)
utilizing a temporary housing trailer. Apparatus from Pocasset has been moved to
Mo Beach and E122 has been relocated to Pocasset. The Tender 128 has been moved
to Station 3.
Nov 1, 2021

 

BOURNE STATION 4 CLOSING?
The Pocasset Fire Station 4, built in 1947, with a cellar under the
main station. It has been coming for awhile, but the station
is no longer structurally sound for apparatus in those bays.
The Engine has been moved outside and the ambulance into
the slab bay on the left side of the station. With colder weather
coming Bourne is scrambling to come up with a solution.
It is likely the Monument Beach Station (100 years old)
will be utilized until a better plan can be found.
Bourne has been talking about a South Side Station,
where both Station 2 and 4 are located, for several years.
Sept 24, 2021


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)

PROPOSED STATION 2
Dennis Town Meeting approved a $14.6 Million price tag for a new Fire Station 2
to be located at 350 Paddocks Path on the North side of town.
The meeting was held November 2 , 2021 and the positive vote was a vast majority.
Dennis voters will still need to give their approval in the Spring
before the project can begin.
Update Nov 5, 2021



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 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.

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.

Dukes County - Martha's Vineyard
New Communications System - June 2021

     Fire, EMS, and Police communications on Martha's Vineyard changed on June 4, 2021 when their new system was activated.
     While the full workings of the system are still being learned, essentially the Dukes County Sheriff's Department, who dispatches all agencies on the island, has built a new infrastructure with several towers across the island and all new digital radios.
      The old system utilized conventional VHF frequencies including:
154.325 (252) which was used as the tone out, paging, initial dispatch channel for all fire and EMS units on the island.
153.770 (838) was then utilized by fire apparatus responding and operating
158.790 (229) was utilized by ambulances responding and operating.
158.850 (860) was the primary Law Enforcement dispatch channel.
      There were other frequencies, but essentially those were the main used.

      The NEW SYSTEM added NEW frequencies, with digital capability. All radios transmit the unit ID with a keyed mic. All radios apparently have the same programming of channels enabling interoperability functions across agencies. At this point, dispatch is known as "CONTROL" on all channels, which is a significant change from the 252, 838, 229, 860 call signs of past.
     It appears there is a bank of PD channels (A bank?) and a bank of FD EMS channels (B bank?). Additional channels (C bank?) include other agencies.
154.1225  nac115 - Appears to be the Primary (B1) Fire-EMS Tone Out and Dispatch channel. Equal to the 154.325 (252) function.
155.4375  nac 252 - Appears to be the Primary TAC (B2) channel. Calls also put out on this channel and most initial talk with and by units responding and operating at incidents. The Sunday morning 10:00 radio checks on this channel.
155.9250 (unk code) - Appears to be the "Down Island OPS" channel. This has been assigned by Control upon dispatch of 2 or more agencies to an incident on the East end of the island (ED, OB at least).
_______ (unk code) - Appears to the be "Up Island OPS" channel. A channel that would be assigned for incidents on the West end of the island.
There are also at least 4 "Fireground" channels. More to follow as learned.

     The Law Enforcement System is similar.
156.2175  nac D10 - Appears to be the Primary Police Dispatch channel for some, if not all, Police Departments.
     There are a number of other Law Enforcement channels that are utilized by communities, OPS channels for multi agencies, and more.

      As further information is available it will be updated.

      June 10, 2021
    

 

 

 

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.
