Condolences to the family of Ed Staveski who recently passed away. Ed joined in 1953, served as Lieutenant from 1956-1957, Vice President from 1969-1970 and served as a member of the department and Fire Police for 54 years.
Too often the only time we hear about our young adults is when they are involved or act in a less than desirable or illegal activity. We are proud to acknowledge Nathan "Hully" Hull and Alexis "Lexi" Lathrop as exceptions. They attended one week of "Introduction To The Fire Service (ITTFS) at the Connecticut Fire Academy in Windsor Locks from July 27th to August 1st.
The ITTFS is an intense residential program designed to provide youths between the ages of 14 and 17 an opportunity to explore the Fire Service. A strong emphasis is placed on teamwork, self and mutual respect and character as students, select their own leaders and learn the basics of fire department organization, the Incident Command System and the core fire ground skills required of successful engine, ladder and rescue company personnel.
Thank you to these Cadets for your effort and support in getting them to the firehouse for drills, calls and events. Yes, we train them well, but they evolve only as far as the time the parents expend and give their support. These young adults experienced something few will ever be involved in.
THE EIFC IS LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEER HELP, WITH SOME CARPENTRY KNOWLEDGE PREFERABLE, TO ASSIST MEMBERS IN CONSTRUCTING A SMALL BUILDING ON FIREHOUSE PROPERTY. BUT, IF YOU WANT TO HELP IN SOME MANNER, WE WILL HAVE A JOB FOR YOU.
