The Fire Department was fortunate to receive a truck donated by the Wilbraham Fire Department. Alot of work was done to the truck, special thanks go to Paul Racicot of the Wales Highway department for fabrication of heavy steel front and rear bumpers, winch mounts, side step/crash rails, painting the inside of car, repairing dash panel, lining the bed, and many hours of labor, we would also like to thank Susan Hubble Whyte for assisting to get the truck into the Pathfinder Regional Vocational High School body shop. The students at the school did a incredible job of taking the truck from looking rough to looking brand new again, outstanding job, Thanks to everyone who assisted with the project.

Safety and Fire prevention should be practiced by people of all ages. Every household should have an escape plan and meeting point far away from their home. Each house should be numbered so as to be visible from the street. Smoke detectors should be installed on each level of the home and for every 1200 sq. ft of living space. Smoke detector batteries should be changed every six months. Carbon Monoxide detectors are now also required in all homes. These should also be on each finished level of the home. There also must be a detector placed within ten feet of all the bedroom doors. Each year Fire prevention week provides us with the opportunity to teach the public about Fire Prevention. Using a regional trailer designed to provide children the basics of fire safety the department will go the the elementary school and provide demonstrations about information to K-6 children.
