To the Times of Ti:
October is fire prevention month. The theme for this year is “Kitchen Safety.” Public awareness about kitchen fires is very important because it is a different type of fire that needs a different approach of extinguishment. We’ll be spreading the word that more fires start in the kitchen than in any other part of the home—and we’ll help teach people how to keep cooking fires from starting in the first place. Volunteers from out department will join other local groups to promote fire safety at Ticonderoga Elementary School. Remember to change the batteries in your CO2 and smoke detectors; a good reminder is when you change the clocks, change the batteries
In September there were 17 fire drills and calls demanding 106.5 volunteer hours, and 5 EMS calls demanding 240 volunteer hours. The Hague community has a very dedicated team of volunteer members who make these calls. Thank you!
Maureen Cherubini and Paul Belden have been appointed as the nominating committee for the election of next year’s officers, and that process is under way. We thank all those who help make this year’s Hague Octoberfest such a success.
On Saturday, Oct. 26, at 6 p.m. the Hague Fire & EMS department will host the Performance Arts Connection. This show features a pro-style wrestling with a Halloween theme. Admission will be by donation and everyone is encouraged to dress for the occasion! Come dressed as a zombie, a ghost or favorite PAC wrestler. There will be an adult and children’s costume contest with unique prizes for the best three costumes in each category. There will be food and refreshments for sale, as well as, the 50/50 raffle. This event will help raise money for the HVFD to assist in equipment and training to better help the dedicated volunteers who serve the people of our community in times of health and disaster emergencies. Come by and see some great wrestling action and help support a great department!
We need volunteers — firefighters, EMTs, fire police and other supportive positions. Young adults, 16 or older, are encouraged to join. Our paid EMS service, E5, is offering an incentive program to encourage our community to volunteer. They will pay our volunteer drivers $1 an hour, in the form of a refillable Stewart’s gas card, paid monthly. This is for any and all hours you volunteer to driver our ambulance between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Training is provided. Also, New York State Fire Association offers college tuition reimbursement funds. For more details on this fantastic program, visit the FASNY website at: https://www.fasny.com/
