To the Times of Ti:
The annual Hague Volunteer Fire Department steak roast is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 3, starting at 3 p.m. at the fire house. It will consist of the usual choice strip steak, baked potato, corn on the cob, cole slaw, rolls and dessert, as well as, beer, soda, hot dogs and hamburgers. There will be raffles and music by our own famous DJ Service. A good time should be had by all. This event is a major fund raiser for the department. We urge the greater community to come out and show its support.
In June there were 38 total fire and EMS calls demanding 216 volunteer hours. Radio and siren tests occurred July 2 and there have been several training drills for fire and EMS on the fire/rescue boat. EMS schedules have been posted for July and the E5 Squad is on-duty for our Emergency Medical Services seven days a week for the summer.
On June 24 the HVFD hosted a continuing education class on “Street Drugs,” presented by E5’s own Doug Wildermuth. Light refreshments were provided, as always all agencies are welcome to attend our classes.
Hague Emergency Medical Service was recognized by Warren County for having a 96 percent response rate, one of the highest in our county!
Many thanks go out to all our volunteers who helped keep triathlon participants safe during the HITS North Country Triathlon on June 28 and 29. In honor of Independence Day, the volunteers from the department stepped-up and showed off our apparatus in local parades. Thank you!
A big round of applause goes out to our newest member, Brandy Bochy. We are very grateful to have another set of hands.
If you would like to join the HVFD, our next meeting is Monday, Aug. 5, at 7 p.m. Talk to any member for details.
