A Message from the Fire Coordinator

November was a very busy month for us with structure fires, car accidents, lost persons and some poor weather conditions. I thank you all for your professionalism and coordination working with all Emergency Services within Sullivan County.

As we move into December we need to continue to stay prepared and ready for what Mother Nature throws our way. 

I would like to say thank you to the 38 out of 40 departments for your participation in the recent Battalion Meetings, we discussed a lot of information and had good conversations.

It has been a year since we started “The Sullivan County Bureau of Fire Facebook page”. The Facebook page has been a great success, thank you for your support. Please share this with all your officers and members. our goal with the Bureau Facebook page is to help reach Chiefs and Firefighters with training information within the County and State, important notices and news for the fire departments and districts of the County.

Fire Reports,   Please as we are winding down the year make every effort to keep up with the reports, our goal again is to get 100% reporting.  If you need assistance with the reports please contact BC-3 Jack Halchak.

Training courses, we are finishing up 2019 training on December 10th.  The winter and spring 2020 courses will be finalized soon and posted.

The training tower will be closed from December 15 to April 1st. Reminder that the training center is available for individual or joint  fire department use, please if interested contact the training center at least 2 weeks prior to use.

I would like to wish everyone a Happy and Safe Holiday Season.

Thank you, Be Safe
