Year Summary

Posted on April 7, 2014 by

Our 2016 year end summary:

It has been an extremely busy and productive year, and we are very grateful and appreciative of the hard work, efforts, and dedication from the members of the fire department. All of our goals, and records were exceeded this year, with 1,320 hours of training went to State Course and another 4,000 hours in department training. We responded to 167 alarms, twenty-one more than last year, marking the most calls in our history. Our response locations with other departments are expanding, as we were dispatched to Bath six times for structure fire and standby crews. Time on the fire ground is increasing with over 3,000 hours and an additional 5,000 hours spent on station duties, assignments, details, and events.The department continues to provide assistance to our Pack 129 group, and we also attended several parades and judging contests. Several new members were added to the roster, currently we hold thirty-two very active and zealous members. The new Memorial Park is near completion, with only a few more steps to be implemented this year. Most recently we established a RIT team, and are now part of the Steuben County Tech Rescue Team. Lastly we are working very close with our neighboring departments in both the Corning and Bath areas as we increase our skills to make the fire ground a more safer and profesional location. Our average number of personnel per call is twelve, with a response time less than five minutes with each truck fully staffed with five to six qualified personnel to do the job at hand.

 

As for 2017,

The members have yet again set high goals and marks to maintain our training skills and hours, and to continue working harder with a few of our neighboring fire departments and agencies. Continuing training with the Steuben County FAST and Technical Rescue Teams will be included to our schedules, along with increasing our training on safety and skills will help us maintain a strong and aggressive fire department. This will enable us to meet all of the New York State mandates, and remain safe on fire department time. Furthermore table-top training and pre-planning will also be increased this year to make our knowledge of each structure in the our district sharp and aggressive. We will also be continuing our busy work in the business department by keeping all our records organized and up to date, finalizing annual audits, and making necessary changes to the By-Laws and Standard Operating Guidelines. Our juniors program is also working hard in increasing their skills and work in the business department, as they prepare to transfer into the senior department. Lastly a small committee of the department wives and significant others will be putting together a scrap book with all the departments newspaper articles and pictures, we hope to have it on display at this year’s open house in October.
