Chief’s Report
1. The live burn on Davidson Hill went well. Need to work on portable pumps and setting up any pump to be sure that the strainers on the bottom are clean and they are ready to use.
2. Lots of good comments on the parade Saturday for the girls field hockey team. A very impressive show of support and strong school spirit for the community was on display.
3. The pressure washer has not been working properly because it had a part missing. The part has been identified and will be fixed. Please let someone know when anything breaks or doesn’t operate properly so repairs can be made.
4. Regular training the 20th will be working with Keene Fire. Scoot packs need to be operational.
5. Two more items to address on Tower 2 to put it into service. Tower 1 will be in service soon.

Chief’s Report
1. Driver Training is coming up. Gary Cobb will be in charge.
2. The LZ that was set up last week was done very well. Thanks to those helping out. The helicopter went to the West station first due to a snag in the system in Keene which has been straightened out.
3. Nice turn out for the M/A call to Cavendish today.
4. Portables: If you have one, be sure to take care of it. The portables that are in the trucks are meant to stay in the trucks. Return one promptly if removed. Also keep track of open mikes. Feedback is a big problem.
5. In the case where more than one qualified driver is in the vehicle, the first one behind the wheel has the right to drive. No one should attempt to take over by “kicking them out”.
6. Always observe the rules of the road when responding to any call whether in your own vehicle or one of the departments. If you are not and there is an accident, you will be held responsible.
7. Headlamps: Take care of them. Change the batteries once a year and once they start to leak, they are no good.
8. Matt Cook donated a light bar for the Utility.

1. Real asked about an issue that came up where the death of a family member of one of the members of the department did not get acknowledged in a timely manner. Pete Harrison assured everyone that it was his slip up and agreed that the bi-laws are clear as to how to respond. Because it was a onetime thing and  the fault of one person, it shouldn’t be a problem in the future. Greg did mention that if anyone hears of a departed family member to make sure the news gets to the people responsible for addressing the situation.
2. Real brought up the idea of the lipsinc challenge. Pete put up a sign up sheet for anyone interested.
