Most of you are aware…. But for those of you who do not know……. Jesse is a kind, caring, hard working man, son, brother, friend and father of two beautiful girls. On Saturday November 11th he was in a severe accident. Crews spent well over 30 min cutting him loose from the vehicle. He was rushing to Strong Hospital where he was intibated and placed in the ICU. Jesse suffered multiple fractures, from head to toe. The most severe of his injuries is a shattered femur, resulting in a catastrophic bone loss. After 20 days in the hospital, 3 surgeries and 14 days in rehab Jesse was released home! Due to Jesse’s significant bone loss his femur will need to be rebuilt resulting in several most surgeries leaving Jesse handicap and unable to work. Not only has this caused physical struggles but it’s begun to cause significant financial struggles. We would like to hold an event in order to help Jesse and his family on the road to recovery.
On Tuesday January 16th the Union Hill Volunteer Fire Department was invited to participate in Ice / Cold Water Rescue training with the Ontario Fire Company. The two departments convened at Ontario’s fire hall to review tactics, safety, and use of proper equipment when dealing with these types of emergencies. Shortly after the two departments traveled to Casey Park to practice self-rescue and one person rescuer techniques. The two departments will continues to train on this topic later this week.
On Saturday December 2nd the Union Hill Volunteer Fire Department and it’s members participated in Webster’s annual holiday parade of lights in the Village of Webster. Several area Fire Departments, Ambulance Corps, and business’ got in the holiday spirit by adorning lights and festive attire and marching down Main St.
Engine 133, Car 23-1, and Off Road Rescue 136 participated on behalf of Union Hill; we also wanted to pay homage to the memory of Chief Brian M. Ball who always enjoyed this event very much, so his name and department ID number was prominently displayed atop ORR-136.
As always it was great to interact with our community in a positive and cheerful way. We also want to take this moment to wish everyone a wonderful, safe, and happy holiday season.
