Windham – The Fire District board agreed to staff the fire department from 8am – 4pm seven days a week with dual certified firefighter /EMTs /paramedics. This will ensure a quick response time to emergencies during daytime hours when dedicated volunteers are at their full-time employments. The board will re-evaluate this program after six months to gauge its success.
In other news, the district board hired a new Fire Chief, six new firefighters, EMTs, paramedics and a grant consultant to attempt to obtain grant monies for expensive equipment for the department, thereby taking the burden off the tax payers. CPR classes are now available at the department (watch fire department facebook page for dates/times).
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer with the department please contact the fire station between 8am-4pm daily for information.
