July 14, 2009

WILLIAMSPORT -- June was a busy month for firefighters, who took 50 calls, and emergency medical technicians, who responded to 102 calls.

The top three fire responders for June were Michael Nokes, William Ball IV and Chris Fraley.

The top three emergency medical responders in June were Donnie Bingaman, Brandon Grinder and Michael Decker.

The Williamsport Volunteer Fire and EMS personnel ran 40 calls in the town limits and about 70 calls in the Williamsport area.

They also ran calls in Halfway, Clear Spring, Hancock, Dargan, Maugansville, Sharpsburg, Fairplay, Marlowe, W.Va., and Berkeley Springs, W.Va.

In the summertime, there are a lot of auto, boat and motorcycle accidents that require the company to utilize materials such as absorbent, c-spine equipment, bags and flares.

Training sessions stressing the basics, along with advanced structural firefighting techniques, will take place this month at the training house on Greencastle Pike. Drills start at 7 p.m. every Monday.
