HPD/ HFD Media Conference: January 14, 2013

by Paul Saulnier
January 17, 2013

A review of police and fire activity between December 13, 2012 and January 13, 2013 ...

 

Police Chief John Moore said that there were 15 incident reports, 11 arrest reports, 7 crash reports, and 539 log entries during the two week period.

Two vehicles were stolen and recovered. Removing the keys and locking the vehicle would probably have prevented one of the thefts. This may have been a theft of opportunity that left the vehicle damaged and abandoned on Fiske Street.

Investigation continues on the student who was arrested on narcotics in a school zone violation.

HPD highlights include Detective Ryan's participation in Applied Patrol Procedures at the Reading Police Academy.

Congratuations to Auxilliary Officer Michael Woods who graduated from the Police Academy on January 15, 2013.

Fire Chief Michael Cassidy said that there were 22 fire incidents, including two full department responses, 33 EMS incidents, one Lifeflight, and a mutual aid to Millis for an alarm at Glen Ellen. Cassidy pointed out that HFD can get to the golf course buildings before Millis fire department.

Highlights include Chief Cassidy's chairing of a meeting of the Metrowest Regional Emergency Planning Council dealing with chemical storage in the area. Ladder and Engine 4 crews conducted ice rescue training on Mill Pond. HollistonReporter.com reported on the training: http://www.hollistonreporter.com/article/7700/Volunteers-on-Ice.html

NStar provided electrical safety training at the staff meeting on January 7, 2013. Cassidy conducted a lockdown drill at the high school and a fire drill at Placentino/Miller school, as well as a public education program at Miller's Extended Day school.

On January 23, the Fire Department will welcome a new intern from the high school as part of the department's Post 745 scout program.

Chief Cassidy announced the start of Open Burning Season which runs from January 15 to April 30, 2013. A permit is required from the department and is good for two days, weather permitting. Check the department's web site each morning before burning, even with a permit, as conditions can change (It's New England). Grass clippings, hay, leaves, stumps, tires and construction debris can never be burned.
