  1. I notice fewer & fewer people using the "Like This" button, now of course everyone is not going to "Like" everything but consider the contribution the person made to the topic. As an example if a person creates an "Incident Alert" and they really take the time to put some details in the story please consider giving them some credit. I have seen some people who no longer post them because it appears no one cares. If people post some photos of an incident and you like them let them know by hitting that "Like" button. Good conversation started or comments you agree with in a topic give them some credit hit the button. Just my opinion Jim
  2. The only time I can say you should be stopped and are in the wrong is if: An officer is trying to make an arrest and you interfere by sticking the camera in their face while they are trying to detain a perp. You are inside a crime scene and you are taking photos / videos without permission -may be other reasons but it's all common sense and the officer(s) should also realize that.
  3. Did the people from The Leftovers put the white flags up on the Brooklyn Bridge? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
  4. Is anyone watching The Leftovers on HBO? Most of it is filmed in lower Westchester & Mount Vernon. The first several episodes got you introduced to the story now it's starting to get pretty good.

  8. Typical crap jumping to conclusions instead of asking for verification.
  9. What does "SOG" stand for?
  10. Looking at the wheel, I don't think he had much steering at all in fact I think the truck probably just stopped right there.

  12. Date: 2/26/2014 Time: 19:30 Incident Type: 5 Alarm Estate Fire Location: 303 n Tower Hill Rd District: Millbrook FD Units: Millbrook, Dover, Wassiac, Amenia, Union Vale, Millerton, Pleasant Valley, Stanford, Kent Ct., Transcare, NYSP, DCSO, Dutchess County Emergency Response & many more Description: 50 x 140, 2 1/2 story wood (10,000+sq ft) heavily involved upon arrival no one home defensive attack from the start. 1,600 foot driveway. Tanker shuttles & draft sites utilized Poughkeepsie Journal http://www.poughkeepsiejournal.com/article/20140227/NEWS01/140227005/Chief-Town-Washington-home-destroyed-by-fire-residents-unharmed --------------- A message from the Chief of the Millbrook Fire department.. My utmost thanks to the personnel who responded to the structure fire last night during which the Millbrook Fire Department fought a heavily-involved fire in a 12,000-square-foot house, seven road miles from the station, in temperatures that dropped to around 0°F by the end of the incident. Our efforts were additionally hampered by the absence of a viable water source in the immediate vicinity, a driveway just under 2000' long and barely wide enough for an apparatus, high winds, and hilly terrain around the structure covered in 18-36" of snow. The fire was dispatched at 19:29hrs, and the last unit was placed in service at 02:50hrs. The occupants were not at home at the time of the fire. Nearly a hundred firefighters operated at the scene or stood by, from Millbrook; Wassaic; Dover Plains; Amenia; Pleasant Valley; Union Vale; Millerton; Sharon, CT; and Lakeville, CT. Additional assistance was received from Transcare Ambulance, the Dutchess County Sheriff's Office, the New York State Police, the Town of Washington Highway Department, and the Dutchess 911 Dispatch Center. If I have forgotten anyone, I apologize. It's been a long night. Fires of this nature and scope are, thankfully, rare. The determination, skill, and camaraderie demonstrated last night are a testament to the positive attitudes and training of our firefighters, EMS providers, and police personnel. While the structure was a total loss, it goes in my book as a "good" alarm: no one was hurt, everyone went home, nothing was seriously broken, and the fire is out. To say I'm proud to be a part of this service would be a gross understatement. I'm proud of each and every person who responded, grateful to all of you for that skill and determination, and humbled that you allow me to lead you. Thank you all.
