Emergency Suggestionx

Sunday, 12 June 2016 17:33

Within the recent weekend’s shocking, Orlando Florida- headline news there were buried several safety induce-and disaster-related messages that have overload parallel applications in routine emergency activities.  Communications, both personal and media based, are important tools in survival.  In addition to the use of cell phones to report either initial or follow-up observations, keep cell phone usage to a minimum.  This practice saves the cell phone battery; minimal communications also aids in preventing cell site

If tagged by the electronic media to share observations, resist the temptation to add any personal feelings or editorial comments.  An emergency is not the time to create a “soap box.”  Facts are sufficient and add nothing else that may contribute to rumors or false impressions.

The first response by individuals who may be innocently drawn into emergencies is to always follow the instructions from emergency officials.  These trained personnel may provide (1) a specific exit path to a safety zone or (2) their informed-observations my result in a “shelter-in-in-place” command. This latter command is growing increasingly common because of better analysis of potential threats and appropriated responses to all threats, both immediate and those of escalating dangers

Equally important are the survival tools that include medical data, emergency funds, and personal items that will aid in being away from home for some unpredictable time.  Some even include pre-selected fluids, food, reading materials, and a battery-powered radio.

 

Final Preparations for the Century Celebration

Sunday, 29 May 2016 18:53

With the surgical precision of a detailed activity and the goals of preparing for a combined family reunion and a large Thanksgiving celebration, the Newtown Square Fire Company members are concluding the final steps in a celebration of a milestone.  The men and women are actively preparing for this community’s life- and property-protecting service’s first century of responsibilities and beneficial activities. Not ignored are the future steps for the next century.

Following the precision of a well-defined Flow Chart, each of the remaining tasks have been identified and assigned participants and completion times and dates.  Pride in the appearance and functional capabilities of both the Newtown Square Fire Company apparatus and the aging fire station has fostered a level of energy and drive that has never had an equal or a parallel.

As a foundation for these preparations, the contribution of the “para-military” image of the nation’s fire service assures even the most minute details have been identified and incorporated in these tasks.  In addition to the evaluation of the response capabilities, the appearance is also a part of these preparations.  Polished metal surfaces are a sign of both pride and a dedication to assure the save response and return of emergency apparatus.

In a parallel to a Thanksgiving preparation, details as finite as washing of the walls and the walking- and driving-surfaces within the Fire Station are being completed.   In a military-based evaluation, the firefighter’s gear and uniforms are also undergoing an inspection.

Within the membership of the Newtown Square Fire Company a strong “family bond” exits.  This includes the multiple generations that have been volunteers within this Century of Service.   In each of the final week’s preparations and activities, there is included time for group reflections and food.  Not only does the apparatus require “fuel;”  so do the crews as they prepare for this Delaware County Firemen’s Association’s Saturday, June 4, sponsored event. Food is scheduled for each work day/night.

As this special event approaches, there has been an increase in the corporate-business support that is greatly appreciated by both the current Newtown Square Fire Company members and the proud alumni that continue to support “their Fire Company.”
