During the power outage from Hurricane Sandy we offered the firehouse as a warming station and shower/comfort station.  Here's a little something that was left on the chalkboard... We love you guys too! Thanks for that little gesture of appreciation it means a lot to us!
 
thankyou
 
We need your help! 
Now more than ever the volunteer Fire Departments and EMS
agencies need help!
 
Pose this question to yourself...
What if you had an emergency and no one came?
This scenario is not a imaginary one! EMS squads around the region have been forced to shut their doors and more are closing their doors during the day throughout the normal Monday through Friday week due to manpower issues.  Relying on surrounding also short on manpower squads and the single paid EMS company in the county.  This puts a strain on both the covering squads and the paid companies manpower.  With today's busy life's and families that have 1 or more member working second and third jobs they have little or no time to volunteer.  With less time in our life's for helping others this leaves critical manpower shortages within our communities.  This critical shortage is a potential life threatening issue.  For someone who needs help due to an illness or life threatening injury they may have to wait for help to come from an extended distance.
This effects everyone in one way or another.  Yes, mostly for the person in need of help, but for the family member that might suffer a loss of a loved one.
What can you do to help?  Any time that you can spare is greatly needed!  Did you know that all training, uniforms and other equipment is provided free of charge?  Ever thought about becoming an EMT? We can provide the training for free!  Ever thought about fighting a fire?  That training also is provided free!  Are you willing to help but cant devote the time to the training or maybe you just want to help around the firehouse? Well help is also needed in all areas.
 NO EXPERIENCE NEEDED!

What do different colored flashing lights mean on personal vehicles?

These lights are only to be used in the event of an emergency operation. The people who display and use these lights must have written permission from the authorized chief officer of the organization for which they are volunteering.

Blue Light A flashing blue light indicates a volunteer fire fighter responding to an emergency call.
Green Light A flashing green light indicates a volunteer ambulance service member responding to an emergency call.
Amber Light A flashing amber light, indicates a hazard vehicle engaged in a hazardous operation (i.e., snowplow, tow-truck, utility company vehicle).

NOTE: In cities with a population over 1 million, a flashing amber light may be used on the vehicle of an individual who is a member of a volunteer civil or crime patrol.

What should I do if I am approached by a personal vehicle with a colored light flashing?

These are not emergency vehicles. Their drivers must obey all traffic laws. You need not yield the right of way to these vehicles. However, if you can do so safely, you should yield the right of way to vehicles with blue or green flashing lights as a courtesy. Also, be cautious in the vicinity of a hazard vehicle.
