Fire Departments come together

Over the weekend members from our FD attended a rally parade in nearby Dumont. Deputy 302 and Engine 34 joined the Dumont Fire Department and departments from all over the county to rally for Ryu. Ryu is a young Dumont boy who is suffering from long term battle with brain cancer and loves all type of emergency vehicles.

This was the least we could do for him. That’s what it’s all about, giving back to our communities. We hope this helped you smile a little bit more Ryu. keep up your courageous fight little man!

We would like to thanks the DFD and Pink Heals for inviting us to attend this event.

Fire CO2 Driver and Pump Training

This past Sunday members of Fire Company 2 conducted driver and pump training with new drivers on the ladder truck and engine. Member were at Hard Castle Pond practicing pumping water to the ladder truck and aerial operations.

CPR Certification at Fire CO1.

Full house last week at Company 1. During last weeks drill members from Company 1 participated in their biennial CPR recertification class and test. Members demonstrated how to successfully apply CPR to adults, children and infants. The use of our AED (automated external defibrillators) and how to check for choking.

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation is one of our most important tools in our arsenal. We don’t just train on it for our own safety but the residents of New Milford or any call we may come up on.

Back during late 2017 it was applied to one of our own who suffered a medical emergency while in route to a routine call. The quick thinking of our members along with this training helped prolong this members life.

Still thinking about joining but don’t know where to do it? Or are you looking for free training, great food, good laughs and a brotherhood like no other then look no further! Come down to one of our stations!
