A Message from the Fire Coordinator

A Message from the Fire Coordinator

 I would like to thank all the fire personnel and emergency services for all your efforts in working together during this pandemic situation.

Memorial Day has come and gone. As we enter into the summer months it brings us some different types of emergencies. With everything going on with COVID-19 we still face the unknowns. The County’s population is increasing for recreation on the river and our visitors and 2nd home owners that are here now full time.  We could face water emergencies, lost persons, activated fire alarms and an increase in motor vehicle accidents we need to stay prepared and take safety precautions.

Fire Reports are now at 100% for 2019, thank you everyone for getting them done. We are now 6 months into the year so please make every effort to keep up with the reports in 2020. If you are having trouble with the reports please contact BC-3 Jack Halchak so he can assist you.

New York State Fire Training is still shut down with a lot of unknown’s as to when NYS Office of Fire Prevention and Control will reopen State Training. I will keep you posted as I am informed. In the mean time you should take advantage of the ESIP training information that I sent out to you.

We have a new workers compensation company here in Sullivan County. There are new forms and procedures which have been discussed. This information is on the Sullivan County Bureau of Fire Web Site.

Reminder that the training center will be available for individual or joint  fire department use when we hit the reopen phase,  please if interested contact the training center at least 2 weeks prior to use.

Thank you, Be Safe
