From the week of April 11-18, the North Attleborough Fire Department responded to 95 calls for emergency assistance.
61 EMS responses, with 29 of these requiring advanced medical life support measures.
1 Motor vehicle collision with reported injuries
9 Smoke/CO detector activation investigations
3 Brush fires
1 Vehicle fire
The remaining responses were due to a variety of otherwise specified incidents such as public service assists, odor investigations, and mutual aid to surrounding communities.
Reminder: Though ‘Open Burning’ season is still in effect until May 1, residents must abide by applicable rules and regulations, including calling the phone number listed on each permit to ensure burning is being allowed that day. Numerous factors impact whether or not burning might be permitted on a given day.
So not only is it extremely important to have a hose and shovel ready and a responsible adult tending to the fire at all times, but also making sure conditions are even safe for burning as determined by the fire department is a requirement as well.
