MIDDLETOWN – The South Lake County Fire Sirens received an award for their contributions to the fire district at their annual Installation of Officers Luncheon held on Jan. 8.


Robert MacIntyre, who is a fire district board member, presented the award on behalf of the South Lake County Fire Protection District Board of Directors.


The Fire Sirens is a group whose mission is to assist the South Lake County Fire District with funding for life-saving equipment. That means that their contributions directly help people in need.


Over the past five years the Fire Sirens have contributed nearly $40,000 to the fire district. This helped the fire district purchase such things as two-way radios, electronic heart defibrillators, modern backboards and much more.


One fire board member commented: “Our emergency personnel in the community believe this to be a huge benefit to those that live in the south county.”


The Fire Sirens also have a program called “The Vial of Life Project.” The program offers medication forms that people can fold up and store in an empty vial or pill bottle in the refrigerator, along with a bright red sticker for the door to alert emergency responders such as paramedics or firefighters. Fire Siren Babe Velellio manages this worthwhile program.


If you would like more information about the Fire Sirens, or the Vial of Life program, please contact Carol Olsen at 707-987-3405.
