Supervisors reports   

Carmen – Made a couple 911 signs.  Everything is good in maintenance for the upcoming snow season.

Haven’t had any more problems with the alarms going off.

Larry – Ambulance meeting will be in January.

Byron – Christmas lights are up. Wish everyone a very merry Christmas.

Mike – Flags are not being displayed.  They were lowered to half-mast for Pearl Harbor Day on Monday, but it was noted they were in poor condition so will be retired in proper ceremony at VFW Post in Cook this Spring.

The Cook VFW Post will donate a POW flag.  Sue commented there are new flags in the Fire department office and one in the garage attached to the office.  Dave will look for flags in office. Must be 5×8 to out-rank POW flag.  They will be located and flags will be displayed.  Thank you to Richard Leciejewski for caring for the flags.

Fire Chief Report – Dave reports in Nov there were 4 fire, 12 EMS, 1 meeting, an on-line training missed in Run report.  1 EMS training, 1 maintenance

They have put in place a practicing policy for 1st Responders and EMR’s to go to calls in full PPE due to the Covid pandemic.  PPE involves higher protection face shields, gloves, booties and gowns. Full PPE will also be used by FF and EMS for lift assists.

Dave will forward to Debby, details on free Covid testing and that will be shared with the public.

Tammy has worked hard throughout 2020 with grants that have enabled replacement of most of the

turn-out gear, however, we still need 3 sets replaced. Replacement cost is about $3000 each, less any grants we can secure, so we’d like to spread out replacement to 1 every 4 months in 2021.

Correspondence – RAMS election ballot arrived – Mike will complete that.

Mike reports Paul Skubic is recovering and hopes to be home by Christmas.

Motion – Request to Adjourn   Carmen/Byron   Passed 4/0   7:05pm
