Assist Newtown Hook & Ladder with Extrication
Wed. Oct 24th 2012

Around 7 am, Sandy  Hook firefighters were dispatched to assist Newtown Hook & Ladder with an extrication on Trades Lane.  First on scene -- which was Wasserman Way in front of Reed School -- was Chief Bill Halstead who reported a 21-year old female was trapped in her car up against a tree  patient was conscious and alert throughout the extrication.  Tools were used off of rescue trucks from both companies.  The roof was removed and then the dashboard was lifted to make room to remove the patient.  The extrication process to remove the patient took about 20 minutes.  The patient was taken by Newtown Ambulance to Danbury Hospital for minor injuries.  Sandy Hook returned to the scene and in service around 8 am.

Move Right For Blue Light

Volunteer firefighters display a flashing blue light to warn other motorists when they are responding to emergencies in their personal vehicles.

While Connecticut Motor Vehicle laws do not require motorists to pull over to the right, please be courteous and let them pass.

Remember: The faster we can get to the scene of a fire, an accident or a medical call, the sooner we can save lives. After all, you wouldn't want anyone to delay our response time if you needed to call 911, would you?

When you see the blue light, move to the right.

The Fireman's Prayer
A Fireman's Prayer
 
When I am called to duty, God
Wherever flames may rage,
Give me strength to save some life
Whatever be its age.
Help me embrace a little child
Before it is too late
Or save an older person from
The horror of that fate.
Enable me to be alert and hear the weakest shout
And quickly and efficiently
To put the fire out.
I want to fill my calling and
To give the best in me,
To guard my every neighbor and
Protect his property.
And if according to my fate
I am to lose my life,
Please bless with your protecting hand
My children and my wife.
