A Message from the Fire Coordinator

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. It has been very busy so far this summer with a great number of MVA’s and Structure Fires. I would like to thank all the Emergency Services for working as hard as you do to get our jobs done safely

The weather has been really hot and humid, make sure you rehab properly when you are training and at emergency scenes. Take the proper precautions, stay hydrated and rotate your personnel in and out of the operations by taking rest periods. For more information on the heat index and heat information go to the Bureau of Fire Web Site, 

Fire Reports:  Please make every effort to keep up with the fire reports in 2019. If you are having trouble with the reports please contact BC-3 Jack Halchak he can assist you.  Please don’t wait to the last minute to do your reports.

August is going to be a busy month here in the County, August 15-18 we have the 50th Anniversary Woodstock Bethel which is going to be a great impact on our roads, The Little World’s Fair in Grahamsville, Porch fest in the hamlet of Callicoon, Camp weekend along with a Jewish Holiday as well as all the other attractions that bring visitors.

Training: Training courses are out and announced. There will be more coming out soon.

 Sullivan County Weekend at the NYS Fire Academy is announced and has a good response so far. The Weekend will be October 26, 27 2019, this is our 25th Anniversary having our weekend and would like to get a good turnout.
