A Message from the Fire Coordinator

Well summer is over and fall is upon us:

As we gear up for cooler weather we need to start focusing on chimney fires, lost hunters and other heating emergencies.

Fire Prevention starts on October 6 thru October 12; this year’s theme is “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!” Good luck with your Fire Prevention programs at the schools and community events.

 Fire Reports;   We only have 3 months to go until the end of the year so please make every effort to keep up with the reports to get 100% reporting again this year.  If you are having trouble with the reports please contact BC-3 Jack Halchak he can assist you.

Training courses; we are finishing up courses from the summer and have some courses beginning in October and November. The winter course schedule will be coming out soon.

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.

The Sullivan County Weekend at the New York State Fire Academy will be Oct 26- 27 and we have 107 Firefighters registered to go.

The Deputy Fire Coordinators will be having their Battalion meetings this month, Chief Officers please attend as there is a lot of information to get out.

The Sullivan County Division of Public Safety will be hosting Cardiovascular Testing at our Emergency Services Training Center (615 Old White Lake Turnpike, Swan Lake NY 12783) on November 7, 8 and 9, 2019. Please go to the web site to get further details and instructions on how to register.

This is open to all Emergency Services Personnel and their families.

Thank you, Be Safe
