New EMS Members Learn About Fire Rescue Skills

WestportNow.com Image
The Westport Fire Department today participated in the orientation for new members of Westport Emergency Medical Services. The program, supervised by EMS Crew Chief Mark Blake, included a demonstration of the importance of having a Fire Department presence at a motor vehicle accident. New members were given a demonstration of an air bag being detonated with a rescue manikin lying on it. Air bags and other supplemental restraint devices can detonate up to 30 minutes after a crash even with the battery disconnected, according to Assistant Chief Robert Yost. He said there have been documented injuries to first responders who have gotten in the way of an airbag when it deployed late in the emergency. Westport’s rescue company carries equipment that will lessen the danger of late-deploying air bags, Yost said. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Contributed photo

U.N. Leader to Westport: World Faces ‘Serious Challenges’

United National Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, in a message to Westport’s annual jUNe Day, said today the world faces serious challenges but often lost are the “vast new possibilities for common progress.”

His remarks were delivered to guests at the Saugatuck Elementary School opening ceremony for the day by Michael Adlerstein, Assistant Secretary General and executive director of the U.N.’s Capital Master Plan. The plan is a five-year program to restore and renovate the historic United Nations Headquarters in Manhattan.

“The world faces serious challenges—climate change, unprecedented levels of hunger, extremism, intolerance, and the greatest economic upheaval in generations,” Ban said. “Yet we often lose sight of the vast new possibilities for common progress.

Ban, who a year ago visited this area (see WestportNow June 1, 2009), sent his “warmest greetings” to jUNe Day participants.

Welcomed to Westport—Again

WestportNow.com Image
Bacher al-Okla, a native of Syria who serves the United Nations as an interpreter, came to jUNe Day today “for the fourth or fifth year in a row.” Posing for a photo with him were his wife Dahra, a native of Morocco, and their children, Nada (l), 8 1/2 and Nadeen, 6 1/2. Nada, proud of her family, said that her father “speaks many languages including Chinese, Arabic, French, Spanish, German, Hebrew and others.”  Both children said they do not consider themselves as having a first language because they speak English and Arabic equally well.
