Remembering Natalie

Jun
01

An Open House celebrating Natalie Friedman's life will be held at the Easton Firehouse on Saturday, June 13th from 12:30-3:30 PM.

 

A Beautiful Life Remembered by Denise Sherwood

 

If asked to name notable community members, people like the First Selectman, the Police Chief or the Superintendent of schools may come to mind. However, in the Town of Easton one of the most notable citizens that come to mind is the lovely Natalie Friedman. For four decades Natalie influenced the children of our small town through her various positions at Samuel Staples Elementary School and welcomed patrons of the annual Easton Fireman's Carnival with an infectious smile.

Natalie was genuine, fun-loving and dedicated to everything she was involved in. In addition to being a dedicated wife and the loving mother of four children, Natalie found time to volunteer in the community with her involvement in the Siren Aide Ladies Auxiliary of the Easton Fire Department.

So what happened? Late last year a security flaw in the CMS system (Drupal) used to run this website allowed it to be hacked and compromised.

Easton FD busy as snow melts

Mar
21

As we all know, Easton had a lot of snow this winter. Those massive white drifts translated into some busy weeks for the Fire Department as melting snow flooded numerous basements. On March 7th alone the EFD responded to 10 separate locations to pump out flooded basements. On that day firefighters and apparatus responded simultaneously to as many as three locations. The last call of the day was for a potentially serious motor vehicle accident. It came hard on the heels of several pump out calls.
