PFD Chief
Pittsfield Fire Dept chief Bob Czerwinski talked to the club last week about his department and fire safety. He reminded us that it is that time of year to change the batteries in our smoke and C02 detectors and check the expiration dates on them to make sure they are still current. He also talked about making sure you have an evacuation plan both for your home and business in the case of an emergency. The fire department is looking to add eight more fire fighters though a SAFER grant that will cover their cost for the next two years, he hopes this will cut down on the overtime. They are responding to approximately 8000 calls a year 65% of those are medical calls where an engine is sent as a first response until the ambulance gets there. They also recently place Narcan on all there trucks in response to the opiod crisis and already have saved one person
