Reverse 911 Comes to Lynnfield
Town Selects CodeRED

Here is the link to~your~Community Notification Enrollment Page (CNE):~

The Town of Lynnfield and its two water districts – the Lynnfield Center Water District and the Lynnfield Water District - has contracted with Emergency Communications Network, Inc. (ECN) to license its “CodeRED” high-speed notification solution to bring Reverse 911 to Lynnfield.  The CodeRED system provides Lynnfield officials with the ability to quickly deliver messages to targeted areas or the entire town in the event of an emergency.  The mass notification system will be used to notify residents of emergency situations or important municipal announcements via mass phone calls, texts, and e-mails.
ECN’s sophisticated network supports a web-based product suite featuring CodeRED. The high volume and high speed communication service employs a unique geographical-based system capable of dialing thousands phone numbers per hour. It can deliver the pre-recorded message to a live person or an answering machine.  CodeRED will automatically include all listed numbers in the Town of Lynnfield.  In order to supply cell phone numbers and e- mail addresses, all residents and businesses are required to log onto the Town of Lynnfield website, www.town.lynnfield.ma.us, and follow the link to the "CodeRED Community Notification Enrollment" page.  
Required information includes first and last name, street address (physical address, no P.O. boxes), city, state, zip code, and primary phone number.  Additional phone numbers can be entered as well.  All businesses should register, as well as all individuals who have unlisted phone numbers or those who have changed their phone number or address within the past year.  Also, those who use a cellular phone or VoIP phone as their primary number should register.

Those residents without Internet access may go to the Lynnfield Public Library to use the Internet during normal Library hours to provide their information over the Internet.  For those residents who cannot enter the information via the Internet, they can opt to come to either water district office or either fire station and fill out a written form and the information will be forwarded.  Do not call the police department for information.  

There will be “test call” of the new Reverse 911 system on Saturday March 19th at approximately 11:00 a.m.

Lynnfield Fire Dept. Recruits Complete Academy Training
“Class #041” Graduates

Nine Lynnfield Fire Department recruit firefighters completed the Massachusetts Fire Academy’s Call/Firefighter Recruit Firefighter Training program and were awarded diploma’s at an official ceremony.  The graduation ceremony was held Thursday, December 20th, 2012 at The Mass Fire Academy in Strow Mass. Graduates received their certificates from Director Edmund Walker of the Massachusetts Firefighting Academy.

The training program,  is a specialized training program aimed at training firefighters from fire departments that are either volunteer or “call” departments.  Lynnfield is a predominantly “call” department, known as a combination department.  The Call/Volunteer program is unique in that it delivers standard recruit training curriculum, meeting national standards, on nights and weekends to accommodate the schedule of firefighters in suburban and rural areas.  Bringing the training closer to the firefighter often means more firefighters can participate.  This program was held in the town of Hamilton to accommodate firefighters in Essex County.  

Graduates from Mass Fire Academy Class #041 include Ryan Batchelder, Frank Cammissa, Christopher Cavalieri, Michael Coleman, John French, Matthew Nichols, Darren Stead, Daniel Veinot, And Kathleen Walsh, all of Lynnfield.   Students receive classroom instruction in all basic firefighting skills.  They practice first under non-fire conditions and then during controlled fire conditions.  To graduate, students must demonstrate proficiency in life safety, search and rescue, ladder operations, water supply, pump operation, and fire attack.  Fire attack operations range from mailbox fires to multiple-floor or multiple-room structure fires.  In this program, firefighters learn form certified fire instructors who are experienced firefighters from all over Massachusetts.  Students learn all the basic skills they need to respond to fires and to contain and control them.

Upon successful completion of the Call/Volunteer program, all four of these firefighters are Pro Board certified as “Firefighter I and II” by the Massachusetts Fire Training Council.  In addition to Firefighter I/II certification, all nine firefighters are licensed Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT-Basic).  “Today’s firefighters do much more than fight fires,” said the Lynnfield Fire Department’s Training Officer. “They are the first ones called to respond to medical emergencies or chemical and environmental threats ranging from carbon monoxide to gas leaks.  They may be called to rescue a child who fell through the ice or in water.  They rescue people from stalled elevators and those trapped in motor vehicle crashes using the Jaws of Life,”  

“I am very proud of what these young men have accomplished.  We now have a system that not only provides excellent training at a state-of-the-art training facility, it also provides for FF I/II certification according to national standards.  They all showed a great deal of commitment and determination as well as a very high skill level,” said Lynnfield Fire Chief Lingel
