In addition to the regular questions of 'What's new in your department?' and 'What's something residents should know?,' this week North Branford Patch is already thinking about (sorry kids!) and asks our town officials, including William Seward, chief of the , about their favorite subject to study growing up.
North Branford Patch: What’s new in your department?
Seward: The department staff is working on creating apparatus specifications, which allows for the replacement of Rescue 11 which is operated by . The new vehicle will replace a 1988 unit that is in dire need of retirement. More importantly, with the challenges that face firefighters today, more room is needed for technical rescue, hazmat equipment and extrication tools. We are also working on replacing the chassis on Medic 4 as the ambulance has in excess of 120,000 miles to its name.
North Branford Patch: What's something residents should know?
Seward: As we exit the summer and begin to think about cooler months ahead, it is extremely important that citizens ensure that residential smoke detectors are operatable and everyone's home has a working carbon monoxide on each living level of their home.
North Branford Patch: What was your favorite subject in school growing up?
Seward: My favorite subject in grade school was science.
