October Month in Review
Tue. Nov 1st 2016

In the month of October, Essex Junction Fire Department responded a total of 42 emergency calls for service. 39 of those were fire calls while the remaining three were medical calls. 

Some of the larger incidents we responded to were;

-Brush fire at Indian Brook Reservoir

-Brush fires on Parizo Drive 

-Brush fire on Old Colchester Road

-Crock pot fire in a residence on Southdown Court

-Extrication of one victim following a crash on Park Street

-Station coverage for Williston Fire Department, both times were for working incidents following motor vehicle crashes 

Other calls answered were fire alarm activations, minor motor vehicle crashes and odors of gas. 

As we inch closer to winter, it's never too early to remind everyone to #adoptahydrant ! This involves shoveling out the nearest hydrant to your residence after every storm, maintaining a three foot area around the hydrant. This saves our crews time when we arrive on a scene (which could be your house) where we need water from a hydrant!
