It’s a little chilly out there; the wind does not make it any better. Spring is right around the corner, and I hope we have seen the last of the snow. When I was a kid, I loved the snow: building forts, shoveling for all the neighbors… They would give me hot chocolate and cookies. Now, I love the snow if I am sitting in my chair and looking out the window. I still like to shovel but am very careful walking and driving. We turn the clocks back Sunday, so the clock in my car will finally be right.

The membership of the Cochecton Volunteer Ambulance Corps would like to thank everybody who attended training. Two ambulance corps have completed mandatory training to add to its ability to better care for the residents and visitors of the Town of Cochecton and Tusten. Both corps will also be adding this treatment to our many other abilities to serve. The purpose of this training was to learn a treatment for some respiratory or breathing problems that was only available to be done by paramedics in the past. But it has been approved for Basic EMTs to use with additional training plus the ambulance service has to apply for permission for the corps to be able to use it. The training was the final step they had to do. Open training takes place every Saturday at 10 a.m. at the Lake Huntington firehouse.
