FIRE SAFETY QUIZ

From the Issue: 
December 2009
America’s firefighters are facing tough times. Perhaps you’ve seen reports of fire stations forced to cut staff, salaries, or forgo new life-saving equipment. I’m writing to tell you that Troy residents can help reverse this trend, with the click of a button.

Starting October 21, 2009 Troy residents can help our local fire department win a $10,000 grant, by visiting BeFireSmart.com/LisaCarpenter and taking a brief quiz on home fire safety. Each completed quiz counts for one point towards that local fire department, and the 10 U.S. departments with the most community participation will earn $10,000 grants.
TROY TOWN NEWS readers can help our neighborhood heroes by rallying family, friends, and colleagues to go online and participate in the Liberty Mutual BeFireSmart Fire Safety Pledge program. The grant period will stay open until December 21, 2009, and winning departments will be announced in January, 2010.

Thanks for your time and please let me know if you have any questions.  Lisa Carpenter  (603) 357-0609 x52426

Troy Emergency Management

From the Issue: 
December 2009
The Troy Emergency Management Committee has been meeting monthly since shortly after the ice storm in December 2008.  A questionnaire was sent out in the spring to all Troy residents regarding emergency information to be used in the event of a town emergency.  If you need to update your questionnaire, you can pick up a new one at the town hall during business hours.   If you did not complete your questionnaire and would like to do so now you may also pick one up at the town hall.  

Winter is fast approaching, and the ice storm of 2008 will be on our minds.  Every home should have an emergency supply kit, some suggested items for the kit are water, food (at least a 3 day supply of non-perishable), battery powered or hand cranked radio, flashlight (with extra batteries), first aid kit, personal hygiene products (including hand sanitizer and moist towelettes), and a whistle (to signal for help). 
   

TROY FIRE DEPARTMENT

From the Issue: 
November 2009
The Troy Fire Department would like to thank Carl Patten and his crew of Stripe and Seal for his generous donation of driveway sealer.  The crew took the time on a Sunday and seal coated the entire paved portion in front of the fire station.  The Troy Fire Department has loaned five old portables in unknown working condition to the Troy Forestry Division for use on fire ground operations.

The breakfast for the month of November will be Saturday the 14th from 7 till 10 AM — Hope to see you there. 
I would like to thank Brenda Huntoon for weeding the gardens and putting up the fall decorations around the fire station.  The Fire Department took 34E1 to the Keene Fire prevention parade on October 4 and won a trophy for best appearing apparatus, and on October 9 the department took 34E1 to the Fire prevention night parade in Claremont and received a trophy for farthest traveled.  The Department went to Tender Shepard School and the Troy elementary School and presented a fire prevention day. 

MEADOWOOD FIRE

From the Issue: 
November 2009
The Meadowood County Area Fire Department will be having a Meat Loaf Supper on November 14, at the Meadowood Assembly Hall on Bowkerville Road in Fitzwilliam, from 4:30 – 7 PM. . Tickets are $9 for adults and $5 for children under 12.  Tickets are available at the door or see a Meadowood firefighter for more details.  We look forward to seeing everyone there.
     Meadowood is a non-profit, privately funded fire department, which means we do not receive funding through taxation.  The fire department is maintained by funds that we receive from grants, fund raisers and private donations from the community.  We thank everyone for their continuing support.  The members of the Meadowood County Area Fire Department wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.

Vandals Caught at The Depot

From the Issue: 
October 2009
On Wednesday, August 12th at half past midnight, my telephone rang.  The voice on the line informed me that the security alarm had gone off at the depot.
    The first call sent from One Source Security and Automation, Inc. was to the Troy Police Department.  When I arrived to turn off the deafening siren and check the damage, Officer Clark was on the scene talking with an eyewitness who saw the five vandals ran off. 
    What these young delinquents hadn’t planned was, when the baseball bat smashed the large pane window, a shrill siren went off and their act caught on tape!  There has been some question as to whether the cameras are fakes.  Believe me, these kids found out that they’re very real.
    It’s a shame these pointless acts of vandalism occur. 
    Some of these foolish incidents might be avoided if parents knew where their children were, especially at this time of night, and with whom they keep company.  The four onlookers, females included, played a role in this vandalism even if they didn’t swing the bat.

FIRE DEPARTMENT

From the Issue: 
October 2009
The cool weather is coming, nights are getting colder so folks will start using different types of heat sources.  Have they been serviced and cleaned for another year of use?  Please check your smoke detectors and change the battery.
The fire station has been painted, the windows are being blocked in and a door installed on the south side of the station.  The old windows were large steel frames that allowed a large heat loss.  The TFD will hold its next breakfast on October 10th. from 7-10 AM and we will also be cooking food at the pumpkin festival on October 17th.
 
TFD has also added two new members, Nicholas Huntoon & Nathan Wielosinski, to the roster.  We also also congratulate Brett Murry & Nicholas Huntoon for successfully completing the state certification of firefighter level one.

MEADOWOOD FIRE

June 6th, Meadowood held their 2nd Annual Golf Tournament.  It was a great success and we have booked a date for next year.  We look forward to seeing everyone on June 5, 2010 at the 3rd Annual Golf Tournament.  Thank you to all that made the day fun and a success.

TROY AMBULANCE

We all came together to come up with ways that we can be beneficial to our community during weather related emergencies. We would like to reach out and have come up with the following plan:
