FARMINGTON – The Farmington Fire Rescue Department answered 22 calls in May, slightly fewer than normal but acceptable for the dry weather conditions.
As usual, the automobile crashes continued to be the most answered calls, a total of eight crashes in the month. Four Brush fires did occur and were extinguished before any serious damage could occur. It is still necessary to get a Burn Permit before any burns and be sure the weather conditions are not too dry. One can check the Monthly Report for any additional calls that were answered.
Training continues as usual and we have completed the necessary Hazardous Material refresher class. The new training center at the Mt. Blue Campus is being used by several departments and the current Fire Fighter I and II class. This facility has many opportunities for a variety of training situations.
