Mass. autism awareness program for first-responders expands to 13 other states

This is the person that will be teaching this class at the school. Bill has already done a class for us in Montreal and it was packed.
Please let your friends know this is a one day Saturday class. Good for all personal that deals with the public.
Please share.. Westwood Fire Captain Bill Cannata has spent the last six years teaching first-responder firefighters how to recognize the symptoms of autism at an emergency scene so they know how to best approach someone with the disorder who is in distress.

Cérémonie d'intégration des recrues du 47e et 48e contingent. Nous accueillons 56 nouveaux membres dans notre grande famille.

Hey good idea.

These two hashtags are not catch phrases, they are actions you can take which can mean the difference whether or not these First Responders go home after their shift.

All too often, emergency personnel and their vehicles are being struck by passing vehicles, whether the motorists are distracted by handheld electronic devices, from curiosity about what is happening, or any number of other reasons.

Emergency responders are performing vital tasks when working at scenes along our roadways. We understand these scenes can be an inconvenience, and even confusing, to motorists trying to get somewhere.

How do you think the people involved in the crash feel? It might be fair to say they are having a worse day than simply having to wait a few minutes to pass by an emergency scene.

Please be patient. Slow down. Move over. Pass by the scene with caution.

Public Education - There are several tasks that must be accomplished at a crash scene: Patient care, controlling other hazards (leaking fluids, vehicle electrical hazards, fire, etc), stabilizing overturned vehicles, removal of vehicles and so on. The severity of tasks depends on the crash (single or multiple vehicles, speed of the impact, are power poles involved, where the crash occurred, weather factors worsening the road conditions), access to the vehicles and patients.

Non-involved vehicles passing by at high speeds pose a significant risk to First Responders working on the scene. Our focus needs to be on the patient’s we are helping rather than having to worry about oncoming vehicles potentially crashing into us or our apparatus.

Help us help you. Proceed with caution.
Slow down. Move over.

La réaction du service d'incendie à la crise des opioïdes évolue pour répondre aux demandes, nécessitant une formation supplémentaire.

Plus de 1,400 pompiers de Montréal sont maintenant formés pour administrer la naloxone. Au cours des derniers mois, il a été utilisé 11 fois sur des patients en arrêt respiratoire.

En collaboration avec nos partenaires chez Urgences Santé, nous faisons une différence.


The fire department has had to evolve with the opioid crisis to respond to the demand.

More than 1,400 Montréal Firefighters are now trained to administer naloxone. Since it has been put in place the past few months we have used it 11 times on patients in respiratory arrest.

Working together with our partners at Urgences Santé we are making a difference.

DOSSIER SPÉCIAL: Les pompiers à temps partiel pourraient se retrouver dans l’illégalité - ZONE911 (média collaboratif)

This is a good article folks.If you understand it.

They talk about volunteer fire fighters getting messages while in there personal car over there cell phones or pagers as many do these days. The law forbids the use of these items while driving they can be given a ticket if stopped by the police. This question was asked to the government here in Quebec and the reply was NO they are not allowed to use their phones or other devices while driving a personal vehicle. They need to pull over and park just like anyone else.
OK something for all volunteers to think about !!! Les pompiers à temps partiel du Québec pourraient se retrouver à un moment en situation d’illégalité depuis le renforcement de la loi sur la distracti...

Police: Dangerous man wanted for Burlington armed robbery

OK folks lets see if we can help out here Vermont.
Share it. Burlington Police are looking for a man who they say robbed a convenience store downtown and viciously attacked two employees.

Very Interesting

**Public Safety Announcement**

On the Morning of May 5th a resident was doing some road side clean up of Route 3. This resident located what they suspected may be what is referred to as a “1 pot” method to manufacture Methamphetamine.

These “1 pots” typically are in a plastic bottle of some kind, sometimes they may have a hose sticking out of it. Things to watch out for are discarded backpacks or gym bags; liquid filled plastic drink bottles with a white residue; a large amount of discarded coffee filters; discarded liquid drain opener bottles or camp fuel cans.

These “1 pots” contain very dangerous gases and chemicals. If you come across something that you suspect may be one of these DO NOT touch it and call the Police Department immediately. These can potentially catch fire or explode; opening them can cause serious injury to anyone near it.

[05/05/19]   Folks when sending in your registrations do not pick classes that are full.You will be placed in your 2nd choice.Thank you.

Association des Pompiers de Montréal

La Journée internationale des pompiers est un moment où la communauté mondiale peut reconnaître et honorer les sacrifices consentis par les pompiers pour assurer la sécurité de leurs communautés et de leur environnement.

C'est également un jour où les pompiers actuels et passés peuvent être remerciés pour leur travail.

La Journée internationale des pompiers est célébrée chaque année le 4 mai. A cette date, vous êtes invités à vous rappeler les anciens pompiers décédés alors qu'ils servaient notre communauté ou consacraient leur vie à la protection de notre sécurité à tous. En même temps, nous pouvons montrer notre soutien et notre reconnaissance aux pompiers du monde entier qui continuent à nous protéger si bien tout au long de l’année.

Notre famille, protégeant la vôtre.

International Firefighters’ Day (IFFD) is a time where the world’s community can recognise and honour the sacrifices that firefighters make to ensure that their communities and environment are as safe as possible. It is also a day in which current and past firefighters can be thanked for their contributions.

International Firefighters’ Day is observed each year on 4th May. On this date you are invited to remember the past firefighters who have died while serving our community or dedicated their lives to protecting the safety of us all. At the same time, we can show our support and appreciation to the firefighters world wide who continue to protect us so well throughout the year.

Our family, protecting yours.

If your BBQ has not been used over winter, it will need to be checked before use.

Look for blocked burners or metal tubes near the burners damaged or leaking fittings and hoses: (Check the seal when you get your barbecue tank refilled and check for leaks after re-installing) clean or replace the briquettes so they do not have a lot of grease buildup.
If needed have the BBQ serviced by an authorized professional.
When setting up your barbecue, make sure it is: outside and in a well-ventilated area far away from combustible materials and windows and doors...SAFETY FIRST..

Description of training: Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) are the fastest growing neurobiological conditions in the world, with prevalence numbers rising exponentially over the last six decades. ASDs impair a person's ability to communicate and relate to others. As a result, individuals with ASD are more likely to have a 911 encounter than the average citizen. These events can be high risk calls for the responder and a person with ASD.
