Since the next HOSELINE won’t be email to all that are on the email list until September, it is still important to all County Chiefs, Training Officers and House Captains, If there are any changes or information about your department that needs sharing, please let me know ASAP, so that I can include it in the next print of the Hoseline.  If there has been a line of Duty Death, a department member has answered his or her last alarm, please let me know as soon as possible so that I can make sure that their name is added to the list and not forgotten at the Annual Hartford County Memorial Service which is held in October during National Fire Prevention Week.  Also if someone is sick or is in the hospital please forward me their name at johnsechcfep@yahoo.com or fax me at 860 747-2137 or by dropping me a line at PO Box 447 Plainville, CT. 06062 so it can be read off at the board meetings and plan meetings.  At this time, I would like to extend my thanks to everyone that has passed on information during this past year to me about their department and will look forward to hearing from you during the upcoming year

What can be said to Chet Haber, Training Director; First and Second Assistants Mike Jepal and James Baldis; Pat Haber, County Clerk and the core of instructors but THANKS for all of your time and effort in making the Hartford County Regional Fire School and the Fire Academy what it is today, ahuge success. Also to all the Hartford County departments and the departments from other counties, a word of thanks to you for sending your personnel to the school for training.

From the board of directors, county clerks, instructors and training directors, we would like to wish every fire member and their families a GOOD and SAFE summer.  See everyone in September.
