Our Volunteers Continue Responding to Fire & Medical Calls
We don’t normally post when we go out on calls, but with everyone feeling a little more anxious when they hear sirens due to the COVID19 situation, we will try to let people know what we are doing.
This evening about 530, we were called out for a CO detector activation. More than 90% of the time it is either a faulty detector or dying batteries. In this case, the fire officer found elevated CO levels and possible symptoms so a full response was activated. This includes a fire engine and medical unit.
During that time we had another medical call in another location. Enough volunteers arrived to split them up and handle both calls.
We are proud of our volunteers who leave their families to go help others. Tonight, people posted on Facebook they heard alot of sirens. Many of our volunteers leave home and respond to the station which may make it seem like an entire army is responding when in fact it may only be a half dozen or so.
In the case tonight, we had 3 people already on station and 10 people respond from their homes.
Thank you for your understanding as our volunteers respond to these emergencies and thank you for supporting our team!
