Be safe during the holidays

To the Editor: Election of officers of the Hague Volunteer Fire Department for fiscal year 2008 was held recently and key officers are: Co-Chiefs Dave Hoffay and Jim Young, Asst. Chief James Belden, Capt. Ernie Trudeau, Lt. Jason Laundree, Foreman Bill Wells, President Bill Mury, and Chaplain Bob Johnson. New appointees to the board of directors are Marty Fitzgerald and Renee Swinton. At our annual Christmas party on Dec. 7 we continued the tradition of every member bringing a contribution of an unwrapped toy and an item for the food shelf, to which the response was outstanding. We also took time to bid farewell to long time member and Chaplain Rev. Rusty Bissell and to recognize Dave Hoffay as Fireman of the Year. Several members have recently attended a National Grid Electrical Course and a Response to Hypothermia session. The public should be aware that a siren test will only now occur on the first Tuesday of each month. In October and November there were five fire calls using 72 man hours and seven ambulance calls using 74 man hours Dont forget to be extra cautious that your holiday decorations are safely installed and that you use only UL approved lighting systems. May it be a safe holiday season for all. Dont forget that its not too late to consider a year end gift to your fire department. We need your support to help keep you safe in the year ahead.
