To the Times of Ti:
May was a busy month for the Ticonderoga Fire Department as expected with the warm and dry conditions. We responded to a total of 19 incidents throughout the month that included five motor vehicle accidents, four grass and brush fires, two Haz-Mat incidents, one water rescue along with seven other miscellaneous emergencies.
Our membership totaled 143.9 man hours for all emergencies. In addition to responding to the emergencies we also conducted four weekly training drills and one additional special drill that totaled 271.0 man hours. We also participated in the Ticonderoga Parent Teacher Association Family Fun Day.
We hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable summer and please be careful if you are out on the lakes this summer. We expect a busy boating season once the weather clears up so please be aware of others out there.
As always we are looking for new members and applications can be obtained on Tuesday and Thursday nights at 7 or contact any member for more information.
Matt Watts, Ticonderoga Fire Department
