A number of fire chiefs, past and present, as well as department members, friends, and families turned out at the Cotuit Fire Station on the morning of July 1, 2017 as retiring Fire Chief Christopher Olsen said his goodbyes after 9 years as chief and officially pinned the chief's badge on new Fire Chief Paul Rhude. Chief Rhude started with the Cotuit Fire Department some 30 years ago as a call firefighter.  He most recently served as Fire Chief in Nantucket for 2 years. Prior to that he was a member of the COMM FD serving as a LT and Captain for a number of years. Note: 90 year old retired Cotuit Fire Chief Walter "Spike" Dottridge (sitting in photo) also attended the ceremony. Congrats and best wishes to all!

Cotuit Fire Department 2001 Runs
Cotuit responded to 629 incidents in 2001, a drop of 13 runs from 2000.  This represents an average of 1.7 incidents per day.

The Cotuit FD will now be dispatched on the COMM FD Fire Alarm channel.
Centerville has dispatched Cotuit for decades, but Cotuit operated on its own
frequency (33.56) and channel on the 800 trunk system.  In an effort to simplify
dispatch and improve on communications, both COMM and Cotuit will be on
the same fire alarm channel... 33.84 and talkgroup 37424.  Cotuit tones will
still go out on the 33.56 pagers and the channel will still be available.
This will be in effect May 18, 2005 for at least a 3 month trial period.
