7 Year Old Run Over By Construction Vehicle
May 28, 2015

ROCKLAND - Fire Chief Scott Duffey says a 7-year-old Rockland boy was hiding under a tarp when he was accidentally run over Wednesday by a construction vehicle operated by his uncle.
The boy, who Duffy declined to name, was rushed to a Boston hospital around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday after he was hit by the Bobcat on a Webster Street lot used by Millenium Fence, a family-owned company that sells commercial and residential fencing. Duffey said the boy's injuries were to his arms and legs and were not life threatening.
Duffey called the incident "a tragic accident" and said the uncle, who he also declined to name, was "devastated" when he realized what had happened. "He initially thought he had killed his nephew," he said.
Duffey said the boy, a member of the family who owns the fencing business, was hiding under a tarp, "playing around as kids do," when his uncle drove a Bobcat over the tarp without knowing his nephew was underneath. He said the uncle heard the child's screams and immediately backed off.
Paramedics from Rockland's fire department initially requested a medical helicopter to take the boy to Boston, but medical flights were not operating because of bad weather and the boy was rushed in an ambulance to Children's Hospital in Boston.
Police said they were working with the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the state's Department of Public Safety to determine how the incident happened.

Adopt A Hydrant
Apr 12, 2015

The Rockland Fire Department has partnered with Hy-Viz Inc.to bring hydrant marker to our community!
  
Some features of the markers:
All markers handmade in the U.S.A 
A FIVE foot tall fiberglass rod -strong yet flexible. 
FOUR Large Bands of Engineer Grade banding. 
Stainless steel rust proof mount. - The hydrant markers will NEVER rust! 


These highly reflective hydrant markers will allow hydrants to be visible day or night, even from a great distance.

The markers will help locate snow covered hydrants during the winter months
and tree and shrub obstructed hydrants during the warmer months, leaf and leaf bag pilings in the Autumn - even behind illegally parked cars! 

Best of all, your adopted hydrant will look great year after year!

And we need your help by "Adopting" a Hydrant - Its one of the best and easiest ways to help you, your neighbors, your property and possibly the health and safety of you and your loved ones in times of emergency!

- Minutes spent looking for a buried hydrant can cost lives!


Here's how the program works:

  • A resident or business will purchase a hydrant marker for $20.00 by either sending a check or money order or coming to the fire stationand completing a brief Adopt A Hydrant Request Form. You can also use a secure online payment link through PayPal (below).

    * Please make checks payable to "Town of Rockland " 
    Rockland Fire Department
     c/o: Adopt a Hydrant Program
    360 Union Street
    Rockland, MA
    023709

     
  • You may also purchase your marker online, securely, directly from the manufacture Hy-Viz Inc. using PayPal.  (Click link for the website)
  • You can also change the quantity when ordering if you want to purchase more than one.
  • Don't forget to complete the Adopt A Hydrant Request Form and contact us when you purchase using PayPal, so we can get your information.
  • The resident or business will provide us with the nearest street address (i.e.. in front of 123 Main Street) of the hydrant (or hydrants!) they wish to adopt at the time payment is sent.
  • Once a group of orders have been placed, the Fire Department will locate the adopted hydrants and place the markers on them.
  • It's helpful if residents could keep their hydrants accessible year-round. Snow in the winter and shrub overgrowth in the summer can hamper quick access in an emergency where minutes, if not seconds, count!
