Can You See Me Now?

New high visibility vests are being distributed to each of the apparatus for use when operating on the roadway. There will be one for each seat on the engines, tenders, and rescue.
These vests are ANSI 207-2006 compliant. This includes a five point break away system, (the Velcro attachment points also make it easy to properly adjust the fit of the vest).
Our traffic control SOG will be updated to include the use of these vests as well as the Emergency Scene Ahead sign noted below.

Thank you to everyone that helped make the 2008 Safety Fair the most successful ever. Nearly ninety children participated in the Passport to Safety program.
Once again, the seamless cooperation between fire, law enforcement, and ems made for an informative and entertaining rescue demonstration.
If you have ideas or suggestions for next year pass them on now; we can make the next fair more exciting and educational for even more of the community.

Cool !!!!!!

Thanks to all of the department members that helped at our recent live fire training exercise. It was a great experience for our 2008 Firefighter 1 class. Thanks also to the Packard-Islam family for making the house available to us.
