Engine on Loan -Thank You Millstone

Thursday, October 13, 2016  Station 82-1's Engine 8282 is out of service due to costly repairs required to bring it back into service. While we are determining how to proceed with repairing or replacing the truck, Millstone Fire Co and the Millstone Board of Fire Commissioners have graciously loaned us their Engine 3274. So while Millstone often responds to aid us on incidents, you may see a Millstone truck around more often as we're using it. Thank you Millstone!



Fire Prevention

Thursday, October 6, 2016  Hope Fire Co. had the opportunity to spend some time with some classes from Newell Elementary School, teaching fire safety/prevention and letting the children see the fire truck. We discussed smoke detectors; the importance of getting out and staying out; having a safe meeting place in front of the house for the family to gather at in the event of a fire; the importance of having a home fire drill to make sure the entire family knows what to do in the event of a fire. At each class we visited, we gave a homework assignment to have their family make sure smoke detectors had new batteries, have the family plan a safe meeting place outside of the house to go to in the event of a fire, and to practice a fire drill at home.... How many families did the homework we assigned?



Congrats, Petrellas
