Dennis FD Tour

This article is a direct street report from our correspondent and has not been edited by the 1st Responder newsroom.

Over Memorial Day Weekend I toured a few fire departments in Cape Cod.

Next on the fire department tours in Cape Cod is the Dennis Fire Department.

I went to both stations 1 and 2 and got a tour of some apparatus at station 1.

Station 2 houses an engine and an ambulance.

Station 1 houses a ladder truck, 3 engines, a utility pickup, 3 ambulances, dive team truck, a forestry truck and several boats both in-station and docked on the water.

The first piece of apparatus shown off is Ladder 110, a 1994 E-One with a 110 ft aerial. The ladder is not pre-piped for water, so there is a portable ladder pipe located on the truck.

The truck is dedicated in honor of Lt Paul Mitchell, who lost his life after 9/11.

There is also a memorial with two pieces of steel from the World Trade Center to honor those who died.

Also toured was Engine 112, a 2021 Pierce with a 500 gallon tank and 1500 gpm pump.

There was also an old reserve engine in station 1 while one of their engines was out of service for repairs.

Both stations 1 and 2 are staffed 24/7 with crews who cross-staff the engines and ambulances.

Thank you to the crew for the tours of the apparatus!
