  A Message from the Fire Coordinator
WOW, it just seemed like I welcomed everyone to summer and now it is over. We had an extremely busy summer with our call volume nearly doubling, everything went well. A big thank you goes out to everyone for getting our jobs done safely.

I guess I can say welcome to fall, with our schools opening, please respond keeping an eye out for busses and children crossing our roadways. Fire Prevention week is quickly approaching as well, we should be getting ready to do our Fire Prevention Education Programs, this year Fire Prevention Week is October 8-14 with a theme of “Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!”

County Parade: This year’s County Parade will be held in Wurtsboro on October 7th, the parade is being co-sponsored by the Wurtsboro, Summitville and Bloomingburg Fire Departments let’s all come out and show our support to them as well as displaying your department and apparatus to the community and fellow Fire Departments.

The new radio project is up and running, all the Departments are moved over to high band paging and transmission. The paging concerns in certain areas have been addressed with some solutions put into place to make those areas better. Please make sure you are following the radio protocol that was given in the training courses at your stations; this will make it go nice and smooth.

Fire Reports, Please make every effort to keep up with the reports in 2017. If you are having trouble with the reports please contact BC-3 Jack Halchak he can assist you.

Training courses, fall courses are out. Please see the web site for all training courses.
Reminder that the training center is available for individual or joint fire department use, please if interested contact the training center at least 2 weeks prior to use.

The Sullivan County Weekend at the New York State Fire Academy is coming up in October on the 28th and 29th. Please if you haven’t sent in your registration do so as soon as possible. See the web site for all the details; 

In the upcoming months there will be individual Battalion meetings. The Deputy Fire Coordinators will be setting up dates with each Battalion
