Ticonderoga firefighters busy

To the Times of Ti:

March was a steady month but without any serious incidents. We responded to 16 emergencies including chimney fires (3), cellar pump outs (2), smoke/fire/carbon monoxide alarms (3) and eight other miscellaneous emergencies. Our membership totaled 334.5 man hours for all emergencies.

In addition to responding to the emergencies we also conducted four training drills that totaled 182.0 man hours. Members are preparing for an April 27 open house as part of the Fireman’s Association of the State of New York (FASNY) Recruit NY 2013. Our goal is to show our community who we are, what we do and how they can help us achieve our goals. While we certainly would like to recruit new members, we feel this is a great opportunity to open our doors show everyone what the Ticonderoga Fire Department is all about.

As always we are looking for new members and applications can be obtained on Tuesday and Thursday nights at 7 or contact any member for more information.

In January we sent out questionnaires to all businesses to obtain contact information as well as very important on site hazards. This is extremely important during an emergency and we have received many back but we are still looking to obtain more. We want to remind businesses to please send these forms back and if you need another one please contact a fire department officer. We also welcome an opportunity to meet with anyone to answer any questions anyone has.
