Missed it tonight, but we were in front of our house over the weekend πŸ™‚. I feel like there needs to be more notice for this sort of thing. Just found out about last nights, now

Thank God bless

Will you be doing this again anytime soon?

Activation of PWFD Audible Alarm System in Support of Health Care Workers and First Responders

This evening (Sunday, April 5th) at 7:00pm the Port Washington Fire Department will activate its audible alarm system in support of health care workers across the country and around the world. More particularly the Department will be saluting it’s own VOLUNTEER membership for the tremendous job they are doing on the front lines battling this invisible enemy.

As the primary Emergency Medical Service provider to the Port Washington Community the Department has responded to over 65 Emergency Medical calls in the past 7 days with over have of them being Covid-19 related.

The siren that you will hear is not the β€œtypical” one heard for fire calls or at 6pm but rather a tone that was used many years ago for school closures. We ask that you all stand in front of your homes on this evening at 7pm and participate in this sign of respect and gratitude by clapping for the brave men and women that make up our heath care providers and first responders that are putting your lives ahead of theirs.

Respectfully,
Thomas Golden
Chief of Department

Due to the increased call volume of the COVID-19 pandemic, 21 members of the Port Washington Fire Department attended crucial training this morning which consisted of an Emergency Vehicle Operator’s Course as well as a hands on Ambulance Equipment Training session. These classes are needed in order to become certified ambulance chauffeurs. This increase of drivers will be a big asset in response.
Thank you to all that attended, especially or trainers: Chairman Scott Werner, Lieutenant Emma Nadel, Lieutenant Kevin Gately and Barry Davanzo.
