Super Bowl

Share via email

Company 35 and Unit 15 remind you to enjoy the game, and not be a statistic. Heart attacks, domestic violence, and structure fire all increase during and immediately after the game. Several things can be done to help reduce your risk.

Suggestions include:

  1. Ensuring you take all your prescribed medicines,
  2. Limiting alcohol,
  3. Not overeating,
  4. Remaining calm,
  5. Not leaving food on the stove or in the oven unattended, and
  6. Preplanning (yes, having your activities planned out will reduce stress and help you enjoy the game with reduced risks).

Enjoy the game and stay safe!

Company 35 was dispatched for a structure fire on Washington St in Dudley. Station 17 and 36 assisted on scene with resources and manpower. Crews arriving on scene found the fire contained by the residents to one room. Crews deployed hand lines to extinguish hot spots, removed items burned in the fire, and provided salvage and overhaul operations as well as ventilation. Engine 17 provided the attack lines, while Truck 35 provided aerial support. The Dudley hydrant system was utilized for suppression efforts.

A special thanks to Station 3 for providing transfer services. Unit 15 and Company 35 Fire Police also assisted on scene.

THANK YOU

Share via email

Company 35 would like to thank all the residents of our service area for heeding the weather warnings, and staying in during the storm. We are thankful to report only minor storm related incidents. We are also grateful to those that assisted us by shoveling hydrants near their homes. We certainly appreciate you helping to ensure our homes and families were safe, by keeping yourselves safe.

Chief 35, “We’re always thankful when we can keep our crews in station during inclement weather. Consistently our residents are vigilant and prepared. Responding to calls in any type of weather complicates things–snow is especially difficult. Thank you to everyone for exercising caution, and taking appropriate action!”

Two Calls

Share via email

Company 35 responded to two storm related calls. Both were for furnace malfunctions. The culprit was, you guessed it, SNOW! The white stuff piled higher than the vent pipes, and it caused the furnaces to lose their ability to vent. Crews threw a ladder removed the snow, and BAM, it worked again!!!!

It was an honor and privilege to serve each of you. Your manners, compassion, and support were certainly appreciated by not just the family, but by us as well. We hope you’ll come visit us again!
