New Engine Tanker Progress

During the last week of April, some members of the New Equipment Committee went to the Rosenbauer plant in South Dakota to inspect the progress of the new engine tanker. Things are coming along nicely, and the new engine tanker should be making its way to the shore very soon. Below are some pictures of the progress.

SFD puts Lucas 3 Compression Device in Service

The Sharptown Vol. Fire Department would like the thank the Sharptown Ladies Aux. for the purchase of our new LUCAS 3 Chest Compression System. In October of 2013 we were the first company in Wicomico County to put a Lucas 2 Chest Compression device in service on one of our ambulances. We are now proud to announce that both ambulances will have its own Lucas chest compression device.

The LUCAS Chest Compression System is designed to help improve outcomes of sudden cardiac arrest victims and improve operations for medical responders. Maintaining high-quality hands-free compressions frees responders to focus on other lifesaving therapies.

Fire Prevention Week

It is Fire Prevention Week. Members from the Sharptown Vol. Fire Department went to Northwestern Elementary to teach the students about fire prevention. Students from Pre K through 5th Grade were taught about fire prevention, what to do in case of a fire, and were shown a little about being a fire fighter. Everyone had a great time.
