Middlefield Volunteer Fire Company

Volunteers Needed!

The Middlefield Volunteer Fire Company is currently participating in Everyday Hero CT, a program dedicated to increasing the number of volunteer firefighters throughout the state. Eighty percent of all fire personnel in Connecticut are volunteers, and the majority of fire departments throughout the state are experiencing a volunteer shortage. Local fire departments need volunteers of all skill levels and abilities, people willing and able to respond to emergencies whenever called upon.

“The skills and experience gained as a volunteer firefighter are invaluable and have a positive and lasting impact on the lives of others,” says Chief Fred Dudek, Everyday Hero CT program manager. “Those who join their local fire departments sign up for one of the most rewarding opportunities they’ll ever have.”

Firefighters Give Scouts Ice Rescue Presentation

Tuesday Evening, members of the Middlefield Fire Company, along with Firefighter Ryan Parmelee from South Fire District, gave an ice safety presentation to the local Cub Scout Pack.  The group was given information on when the ice is safe to be on, as well as what to do in an emergency if someone were to fall through the ice.  Captain Jeff DiCostanzo, Lieutenant Dana Arnold, Lieutenant Steven Tyc, Past Chief Bruce Villwock, and Firefighter Nicholas Tyc gave a demonstration on the equipment used and methods of rescuing a victim during an ice water rescue incident.

If someone is in trouble on the ice, or falls through, it is important not to go on the ice to try and rescue them, as the ice is probably not safe to be on.  If you do witness someone fall through the ice, the most important thing is to call 911 and keep your eye on that person at all times, and give responders an accurate location of the victim.
