Four Firefighters Presented With Merit Awards During 2012 CT State Firefighters Association Convention
Sat. Sep 15th 2012

On Saturday, September 15, at North Haven High School, four Sandy Hook firefighters were awarded with Certificates of Merit during the Connecticut State Firefighters Association annual meeting.  EMS Captain Karin Halstead, Engineers George Lockwood Jr and Robert Sibley, and Firefighter Archie Paloian were given this honor due to their efforts on November 1, 2011, when they were instrumental in saving a man's life.  Coincidentally, the patient's birthday was the same day the awards were received.  The four firefighters, along with Chief Bill Halstead, were the first to be called honoring during the awards ceremony following the business portion of the annual meeting.  The five members stood on stage while a committee member read off the details of what occurred that day in November, and then each firefighter was given a certificate.  The group was additionally honored to see 16 family members and friends supporting them during the meeting.

We shall do this by maintaining a high standard of training and public education and act and perform in a safe, courteous and professional manner.

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.
