Water Witch Hose Co. #2 in New Milford responded to 603 calls to service during 2016. The all volunteer department was called for everything from structure fires, to car accidents, to technical rescues and a wildfire.
Department officials say volunteers also spent hundreds of hours of training, made community appearances, taught fire prevention, and held fundraisers during the year. Water Witch was able to purchase new and innovative equipment to keep members up to date with the best life saving tools available.
In a Facebook message, Water Witch Hose Company said they stand at the ready for New Milford, and will be there if the community needs them.
