Recruit NY Open House
On Saturday, April 29, 2017, Northpole held it's annual open house as part of the FANSY Recruit NY event. Tours of the Fire Station and the apparatus were given all day long.  There was also a brief auto-extrication demonstration to watch.  In conjunction with the Open House, Members conducted a Chicken BBQ to benefit local K-9 Police Dogs in the area.  On hand were Watertown City Police and Jefferson County Sheriff's Office K9 Officers (Nico, Ricky and Scout) with their respective handlers (Mike Maney, Wayne McConnell and Adam Hallett).  300 chicken dinners were sold and several hundred people came through the doors.  Thanks to Matt Fitzgerald, Paul Fitzgerald, Ethan Parker, Joe Seeber, Carl Herman, Ron Branche for helping with the event!  Also thanks to Rod Keefer, Dan Reff and Chris Reff for cooking the chicken.  There were many positive comments from the public about the day.  











Mutual Aid to I-781 for MVA
On Wednesday, December 21, 2016 at 00:04 hours (just after midnight), Northpole was dispatched as mutual aid to respond to an MVA on the I-81 South Bound on-ramp coming off of I-781.  The incident involved one tractor (from a tractor trailer) that had 3 other rigs piggy backed on to it.  The piggy backed tractor's broke loose from the tow vehicle while exiting I-781 to enter I-81 South.  Fortunately no one was injured in this incident and the wrecking company used a rotator to pick up the rigs to separate them from each other.

Northpole Responds to Rollover
On Thursday, December 15, 2016 at 17:05 hours, Northpole was dispatched to a MVA-PI rollover at State Route 37 and US Route 11.  Chief 1 arrived on scene and discovered it was actually across from Space Age Pools.  The weather was cold and snowing hard and the roads had turned slippery.  This driver was very lucky to have escaped with no injuries.  However, FF Matt Fitzgerald discovered quickly while checking out the vehicle that the vehicle was not only upside down, but also in a small ditch filled with water which was hidden by the snow.  Matt suddenly discovered his boot filled with icy cold water.  This should be a reminder for all people to exercise extreme caution at all incidents and drivers please SLOW DOWN in inclement weather.  Emergency responders should also be reminded to exercise caution when sizing up scenes and investigating incidents.
