Summer has arrived and with it, we have been busier than ever at the fire department! We are excited to introduce our newest recruits, Carson Hulse and Brian McGowan. Both Brian and Carson are currently working their way through our introductory academy and should complete it sometime in July. Once they have completed the academy, they will be assigned to one of the shifts to complete their probationary year. Welcome, guys!
With the warm weather, we have had a dramatic rise in cardiac-related issues including heart attacks. We want to encourage everyone to stay hydrated, take breaks, when possible, limit caffeine and alcohol intake, and call 911 if something is out of the ordinary. Signs of a heart attack can include chest pain or discomfort, shortness of breath, pain or discomfort in the jaw, neck, back, arm, or shoulder, or feeling nauseous, light-headed, or unusually tired.
That’s all from the Fire Department, until next month – stay safe!
