A tour of the Lake Avenue Firehouse with Chief Pete Shaw

IMG_5665Earlier this week, I was lucky enough to get a tour of the Saratoga Springs Fire Department Station on Lake Avenue, from Chief Pete Shaw - he and the firefighters at the station walked me through the engines, ambulances and quite literally all the bells and whistles of the SSFD! We have a world-class fire department and EMS team and I was in awe of the complexity and detail that go into maintaining and manning our city’s firehouses. A HUGE thank you to Chief Shaw for taking the time to walk me through the station and to all of the men and women of the SSFD for everything you do for our community! Above are a few snapshots of the Lake Avenue Station -

So impressed and proud of our Saratoga Springs Police Department, all of whom are spending the week running active shooter drills while schools are on winter break. This afternoon I witnessed more than a dozen scenarios (all taken from actual active shooter events) play out -officers and dispatchers were on-site training, running drills and analyzing their responses, again and again. Below are several photos of their training this afternoon, I applaud our entire department for their pro-active approach to school safety, dedication to preparedness and education- thank you all!
