Bad­deck Vol. Fire Dept.

BVFD re­sponded to no calls dur­ing some of the most se­ri­ous win­ter weather to hit Bad­deck and area in a long time. In par­tic­u­lar no ve­hi­cle ac­ci­dents and no chim­ney fires. This means that res­i­dents are prac­tic­ing good risk man­age­ment thus avoid­ing po­ten­tial fire hazards dur­ing se­vere weather events. It would have been im­pos­si­ble for many BVFD fire fight­ers to re­spond to any emer­gency as most fire fight­ers were also snow bound. A big shout out from BVFD to res­i­dents for keep­ing the alarm silent over these past two weeks and for not putting fire fight­ers at the ex­treme risk of try­ing to re­spond.

The an­nual meet­ing of BVFD took placed Feb. 7, 2017. The fol­low­ing Of­fi­cers were elected to serve a one-year term: Chief Dar­ren Ma­caulay, Deputy Chief David Buchanan, Trea­surer Scott Buchanan, Sec­re­tary Har­vey Mc­fad­gen, Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Of­fi­cer Cpt. Dan Chi­as­son.

The fol­low­ing fire fight­ers will act as Cap­tain/ Lieu­tenant for the de­part­ment’s 4 ve­hi­cles. Truck #1, Hugh Mon­roe/ Jeremy Smith; Truck #2, Shane Macfar­lane (50+yrs)/ Jonathan Ma­clean; Truck #3, Charles Gar­land/ Bobby Buchanan (50+ yrs); Truck #4, Matt Samp­son/ Doug Ronne

Con­trib­uted by Cpt. Dan Chi­as­son, Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Of­fi­cer for the Bad­deck Vol­un­teer Fire De­part­ment.
