Ticonderoga firefighters busy

To the Times of Ti:

February continued to be a busy month for the Ticonderoga Fire Department. First, our thoughts and prayers go out to the Merfeld family who lost their house to fire.

We responded to 17 emergencies including: house fires (two), motor vehicle accidents (two), EMS assists (three) and 10 other miscellaneous emergencies. Our membership totaled 281.8 man hours for all emergencies. In addition to responding to the emergencies we conducted four training drills that totaled 204 man hours. Throughout the month all members obtained firefighter physicals to comply with mandated OSHA requirements.

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

With spring quickly approaching we strongly encourage everyone to please stay off the ice on the lakes as it is unsafe.
