New leadership

To the Times of Ti: The year past was marked by some significant changes in leadership, along with an ambitious schedule of training and certification as well as a busy call schedule. With the departure of long time Chief Chris Swinton, Dave Hoffay and Jim Young were appointed and then elected co-chiefs for 2008. Training occurred in several areas, most notable: 240 man hours in Confined Space Rescue Training, a National Grid Electrical Safety Class, and a Response to Hypothermia class. There were two newly-certified EMTs and two recertified EMTs. Recently Warren County Emergency Communication Specialists presented a course titled Communications Policies, Procedures, Parts and Pieces to 24 members. For the year, there were a combined 131 EMT and fire calls using 1,576 man hours. The department is enthused with the progress to date toward reorganization, and we look for our communitys support as we move into the new year. A word to the wise we should be cautious of the wet snow that fell on newly formed thin ice last week. Joe McCranels Information officer Hague Volunteer Fire Department
