Spring safety stressed

To the Times of Ti:

It’s the law for small craft, but for anyone boating at this time of year, personal flotation devices and warm clothing just make sense. You should also let someone know where you will be going and for how long. When working outside, always take two and think the job through.

EMS Capt. Renee and Asst. Capt. Meg would like to thank all the Hague EMTs who turned out to help make the Winter Festival Polar Bear Plunge a safe and successful one. Our department would also like to thank all who supported our fireman’s breakfast and chili cook off as well.

General fire equipment training is ongoing and confined space training in relation to the sewer plant is up coming.

The contract renewal with E5, the agency which provides paid EMS coverage during the day, has been renewed and they will begin a seven-day, 12-hour shift in the near future.

We will be having a pig roast on April 28 as part of Volunteer Recruitment Week. Look for more details in up coming issue and on the Hague Chamber of Commerce web site.

In February there were 13 fire call using 19 man hours and eight EMS calls and one standby using 322.5 man hours.

The next meeting of the HVFD is Monday, April 2, at 7 p.m. at the Hague station. New members are always welcome.
