Fire Prevention Day At Sandy Hook School
Fri. Oct 12th 2012

Firefighters from Sandy Hook Volunteer Fire & Rescue spent Friday, October 12 at Sandy Hook School. Nearing the end of Fire Prevention Week, it was a time for students of all grades to learn about fire safety for themselves and their homes, as well as see some of the tools used by firefighters.

Five members of the company arrived at the school for a fire drill Friday morning, and then spent the remainder of the day presenting programs geared to the different age levels. Students listened to presentations by Engineer Rob Sibley, who was joined for the day by Firefighters Pete Barresi, Shannon Hicks and Erica Knapp, and Junior Corps Captain Andy Dewolfe. After each presentation students were encouraged to ask questions.

Each group was also given time to meet the firefighters and then headed outdoors for a few minutes to see (and, when the rain stopped, go through) Engine 442.

Firefighter Sibley had Firefighter Barresi (right) put on full gear, including an air pack, so that students could see -- and hear, once the pack was turned on -- what a firefighter would look and sound like when responding to a fire.
Students were also introduced to some of the medical gear firefighters are trained on and carry on apparatus.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Sandy Hook Vol. Fire & Rescue Co., Inc. is to strive for excellence in the performance of prevention of loss of life, personal injury and damage from fire, medical and other emergencies of any or all persons when called upon. 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.
