To the Times of Ti:
At our most recent meeting, the Hague Volunteer Fire Department inducted Brandy Lyn Lastowski, Jonathon Yerdon and Teresa Medina as members, with Harley Trudeau and Karney Manning as junior members. We welcome them all to our ranks.
The regional head of Mountain Lakes Services addressed our EMS members on Feb. 9 and various training of EMS calls were handed out at that time. Also, the district EMS symposium, referred to in our last article, and attended by several of our members was considered a huge success.
In January, there were nine fire calls and three EMS calls using 68 man hours. A radio and siren check occurred on Feb. 7, with an equipment check following.
While it does not look as though our end of Lake George will likely freeze this winter, some bays and nearby ponds certainly will, so we urge that anyone venturing out on frozen ice surfaces use extra precaution, especially this year of unseasonable conditions. With warm days and cold nights of late, watch out for icy patches on the roads
We are happy with the addition of so many new young members to our department, but our doors are open to more, so if you have an interest, contact any active fireman for information on joining us.
We hope that when this issue hits the streets that everyone will have enjoyed another safe and wonderful Hague Winter Weekend.
