Emergency personnel training

To the Times of Ti:

Several Hague EMT and fire personnel are attending an EMS Symposium sponsored by the West Glens Falls EMS. It runs for two full days and covers emergency medical care with various courses offered for all levels of Emergency Medical Technicians. Also, EMS Radio Communication Training will be offered at our main station.

The department recently held a member wide clean up and removal of all old, broken and unusable equipment from the property, in the interest of looking our best during Winter Weekend.

There were 12 fire calls using 50 man hours and nine EMS calls using 281 man hours in December.

The Hague Volunteer Fire Department will once again host the Firemen's Breakfast as part of the annual Winter Weekend on Saturday morning, Feb. 18, from 7 to 11 a.m. Details elsewhere. Some tips for getting through the winter safely: Be sure that stove and fireplace chimney and flues are kept clean. Use good winter tires. Carry an emergency break down kit in your car. Don’t walk in unplowed roads.

The Hague Volunteer Fire Department is always looking for new members at any level, supportive, fire police, EMT or firefighter. What a great way to start the new year, and serve your community in doing so.
