EHC Watercraft Registration Sticker

ATTENTION  SHAREHOLDERS

          Over the past few years there has been a market increase with outsiders trespassing and using our beach. Violators have even been known to use it, to store their watercraft. Additionally, we have received many complaints of missing and stolen watercrafts.              

If you are storing your watercraft at the beach—

· Register your vessel and make sure the sticker is visible

· Safeguard and secure by chaining your craft to the rack

· Do not give your electronic gate passes to outsiders

Messages from the Eaton’s Neck Fire Department By Rich Baer

The number to call in case of a fire or medical emergency is
757 5700!
Do not hesitate to call. It is better to be safe than sorry.
Trained volunteers will respond to your call for help.

In the event of an emergency, especially fire, call 757 5700. The latest Underwriter Laboratory study reveals that in 2015 the time to escape a burning structure is three minutes as opposed to 17 minutes 30 years ago! This emphasizes the need for working smoke alarms as well as new wireless, smart alarms which can be configured to send an alarm directly to the fire house, resulting in a quicker response by the fire department. To learn more about how fires have changed, visit nytimes.com/nest.

 There has been a life saving addition to the equipment available to the department's emergency rescue squad. That addition is a LUCAS II  Chest Compression System. The LUCAS II chest compression system is designed to deliver uninterrupted compressions at a consistent rate and depth to facilitate ROSC ( return of spontaneous circulation) The LUCAS is a light weight life saver in cardiac arrest situations. It replaces manual compressions by EMTs and delivers compressions at the scene of the emergency, on the pram while the patient is moved to th ambulance and during transport to the hospital. The model that the fire department has placed in service has a battery life which will enable the cardiac patient to be transported to the hospital without interruption of compressions.

 The compressions delivered by this portable, easy to use device delivers automated, guidelines-consistent chest compressions to improve blood flow in victims of cardiac arrest. By comparison, the effectiveness of manual compressions can drop rapidly-often after only one minute- due to rescuer fatigue. With LUCAS, automated compressions are delivered consistently and continuously during transport and throughout the hospital. The LUCAS is a very important addition to the medical abilities of the Eaton's Neck Fire Department rescue squad!

 The positive addition of the LUCAS is balanced by the continuing need for additional members to the fire department. Chief Paul Boronow continues to lead a recruiting effort for new members. The need for additional members is critical and ongoing. Members of the fire department contribute to the community of Eaton's Neck by volunteering to help residents in need. Membership is rewarding and is the closest example of "Charity begins at home". For information about how you can play a role in helping neighbors, please call First Assistant Chief Rich Rizzuti at 261-4910. Thank you

 The members of the department thank all those residents who supported the recent Fund drive. Thank you very much!  All the members of the department wish everyone a happy and safe holiday season.

 

Yours for fire safety,  Rich Baer
