Firefighters battling a fire

A Message from the Fire Coordinator

 

Well, the weather is changing; time is changing so it must be November.

As we gear up for colder weather we face some different challenges, ice and snowy roads, chimney fires and other heating emergencies, CO calls and lost hunters. We need to be ready.

Fire Reports,   Please make every effort to keep up with the reports we have 2 more months left to the year, let’s get 100% reporting.  If you are having trouble with the reports please contact BC-3 Jack Halchak he can assist you.

Training courses, we are running a Basic Firefighting class and Refresher courses at the present time. We are working on the schedule for some winter courses.  

Reminder that the training center is available until the middle of December for individual or joint  fire department use, please if interested contact the training center at least 2 weeks prior to use.

Healthiest Fire Department Challenge: The countdown has started, 2 months left to join the Sullivan 180 Healthiest Fire Department Challenge starting January 1, 2023. Our brave Firefighters of Sullivan County give so much, let’s take that step to help make it healthier and safer for them. If you haven’t registered yet there is still time. Please give Sullivan 180’s Outreach Coordinator Lindsay Wheat a call  at 845-295-2683 or email  lwheat@sullivan180.org  to set up your department meeting and register.

I would like to wish everyone a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving.

Thank you, Be Safe
