          *****************************************

ALERT FOR RESIDENTS OF BLOOMINGTON FIRE DISTRICT !!!

Our department is asking you to please follow these precautions during the COVID-19 outbreak:

If you are quarantined(mandatory or self imposed) in your home due to a possible or confirmed COVID-19 exposure, PLEASE notify 911 when you call and advise the dispatcher. We also ask that you place a sign/note on your front door to alert our firefighters to take infection-prevention precautions before entering your home of business.

We need to protect our crews so that they will be able to continue to meet the emergency needs of the community. Elsewhere, there have been entire fire companies quarantined after they have responded to quarantined homes and were not alerted before entering. Those first responders are now unavailable to help anyone for at least 14 days.

In our department we cannot afford to have this happen and being VOLUNTEER we do not want to have to take it home to our families.

THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING.

BRUSH FIRE AT WILLIAMS LAKE NOV. 10, 2022

 

Yesterday about 3:15pm we were dispatched for a brush/woods fire on the Williams Lake Project property off Williams Lake road. On arrival there was approximately 5 acres burning with a wind coming out of the southwest pushing the fire deeper into the forest. Mutual aid was requested from Rosendale, Stone Ridge, St. Remy, Tillson, High Falls and New Paltz Fire Departments. We were also assisted by Ed Garland Construction utilizing a bulldozer to construct a fire line around the east, north and west ends of the fire. The Town of Rosendale Police Department, Ulster County Sheriffs Department, New York State Police, and the Ulster County Fire Coordinator’s Office also assisted at the scene. Our Ladies Auxiliary responded to the scene to provide refreshments for crews and we were back in service at 8:16pm. Approximately 25 acres of rough terrain was scorched by flames and there were no injuries. Thank You to all that assisted and anyone that would like to join our department please call 845-338-2794, leave a message and we’ll be sure to contact you.

I would like to extend our sincere thanks to our Members and assisting Mutual Aid Companies for the quick stop at our structure fire at 530 Hickory Bush Rd. The initial dispatch said there was smoke coming from the roof, upon arrival that was in fact the case. Heavy smoke was rolling down from the eves and attic vents.  A second alarm was immediately called for bringing an Engine from Kingston Fire and a Fast Team from Ulster Hose to the scene. Our Engine 1, Engine 2 and Engine 3, Tankers from Tillson and Rosendale operated at the scene, and a Engine from St Remy went to the fill site. Hurley and Spring Lake stood by at the Bloomington station, Stone Ridge at the Binnewater station. Soon after, Ulster Hose was called for a Tower Ladder to the scene to assist in roof ventilation, and Stone Ridge was then called for their Fast Team. After initial attack and the fire was out, all companies assisted in getting all equipment back in service. The UC Fire Investigation Unit determined the fire started in the attic and was electrical in nature. We were also assisted at the scene by Rosendale Police, NY State Police and Mobile Life. The home owner was not at home at the time of the fire and we had no injuries. A total of 8 Mutual Aid Companies and approx. 60 personnel were involved. We would also like to thank the Bloomington Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary for providing refreshments.

Central Hudson and Ulster County DOT responded and made sure the wires were safe, the wires were removed and the motorist was on her way.
