To the Times of Ti:
The Hague Volunteer Fire Department, as usual, will be deeply involved in the annual Hague Winter Weekend Feb.15-17. The firemen’s breakfast, Rotary silent auction, emergency support of the Polar Bear Plunge supporting the Vermont Children’s Hospital, and the Chili Cook Off complete the WWE schedule. Be sure to come out and enjoy all that winter in Hague has to offer. Our firemen are currently training with and testing Scott air packs along with regular monthly fire training, radio and siren testing. EMT training and skills learning is on going.
In December there were 14 fire calls and drills using 206 man hours and seven EMS calls using 194.5 man hours.
Thanks to one and all in Hague and our surrounding communities for your continuing support.
If you expect to be out in the cold for long periods of time, be sure to insulate your extremities. Wool, felt, down and thinsulate are still the materials of choice.
Happy New Year.
Joe McCranels information officer, Hague Volunteer Fire Department
