    Warner, NH (pop: approx 3000) had two structure fires on Christmas day. One was a a 3 alarm barn fire that gutted the house and the other was a mobile home fire that ended up going to a second alarm.

    This Christmas a neighboring department had a trailer fire fully involved on arrival.

    Last year my department had a working house fire that we saved, but it had substantial damage.

    Seems like every year someone in our county has a house fire on Christmas Eve or Christmas day. It sucks.

    Nothing but a duct detector at the Holiday Inn for us. And after we popped the access panel for the duct, and saw how nasty it was in there, we were amazed that they're all not going off, all the time. Quiet night otherwise.

    A police officer locked himself out of his house.
    Ladder to climb into bathroom window.

    Better than shoveling Christmas presents onto the front lawn!

    Stay Safe

    Xmas eve 1997, 12 inches of snow on the ground and still snowing & blowing very hard. We get dispatched to a residential fire 12 miles south of town.Very, Very rural area I caught the first tanker out the door and we were right behind the engine.We had a hard time seeing and trying to keep the trucks on the road was a real B#%ch.The tanker I was in DIED halfway to the fire and there I sat listening to the fire radio. Engine goes on scene and reports a fully involved structure. My heart sank and there was nothing i could do to help out.

    Stay safe

    We had just put the Turkey in the oven (1400 hrs.)and 10 minutes later we were dispatched to a 2nd alarm for a structure fire in neighboring town. The first in pumper had a 50% involved garage/barn (30'X20')and just a driver for a crew. We were fourth in and arrived 10 minutes after dispatch. By then the second and third pumpers crews had the fire knocked down and were overhauling it. We staged a block away and were released 15 minutes later. That was our excitement for the day.

    It was 23:45 on Christmas Eve we had a call for a cardiac arrest. I was the medic riding backwards(my Christmas present)on our engine and we had a county rescue(they were closer than ours) and our EMS captain. It took us about 15min to get thier because it is in a very rual area. when we got thier we notice the scene lights were reflecting off a high tension wire from the power pole to the house. We walked in to the house and the pt's wife pointed us to the room he was in. Standing outside the door your hair would stand up from the amout of electricity. We could barly see the pt and he was not moving. He also seemed to have a burn mark on his right hip. It took 30 min for the power co. to shut off the power because thier were just too many jerry rigged electical lines, boxes, junctions etc. and every time we thought the power was out a light would come on somewhere else in the house or a phone woul ring. After we were assured by the power co. that it was safe we walked in and found him. He had grabbed a 220 line which had been partialy exposed. There were exit woulds on both hips and left fore arm. Unfortunatly we always have a code or a suiside on Christmas Eve.

    Our volunteer department had to run the call we all dreaded on Christmas eve. One of the founders of our dept. with a terminal disease had to call for an ambulance in the middle of the night. Our department is first response in this district. We provided O2 and comforted him until the ambulance arrived. He made it through Christmas Day and is resting comfortably in the Hospital. All of our prayers are with him and his family.

    Happy and Safe Holidays to all!

    Slow on X-mas day... A couple of medical aid runs and one "Kitchen Fire" that turned out to be nothing but a ruined prime rib roast. You know, those suckers can really fill up a house with smoke when they're left in the oven too long at too high a temperature! It was dinner out for them!

    Have a happy new year everybody!
