"It was a busy and challenging year for the squad in 2012. The squad's dedicated volunteer members responded to 2510 calls last year.
Over 2500 calls, that's quite an accomplishment for an all-volunteer squad in this day and age. Not many volunteer departments can do that. But we can do that, and we manage to do that, day
after day, morning, noon and night. And we do that at no cost to the patient or Town of Westfield.
The squad's response to those 2510 calls was only possible because of the great dedication of our volunteer EMTs and dispatchers. And our members couldn't do what they do without the great
financial support of the residents of Westfield.
It has been an honor to serve as captain of this squad. I'd like to thank the following for assisting me with my captain's duties: Suanne Hutchinson, Lynn Feldman, Reid Edles, Dan Sullivan,
Marcelo Adinolfi, Jay Slomovitz, Dick Kenyon, Candy Jackovino, Dan Klibaner, Rich Jackson, Pat Tighe, Steve Becker, Bob Barrett, Brendan Galligan, Ron DeVelde, Dariusz Tokarz, Kim Adams and Drew
I'd also like to thank Lt. Christopher Battiloro and Chief David Wayman of the Westfield Police Department as well as all the WPD officers who provide first-responder assistance on squad
calls. The same also applies to Westfield Fire Department Chief Dan Kelly and the department's firefighters."
