If Branford can do it, HPD should be able to do it bigger and better.
Maybe we can get Assistant Chief Medina to don his Santa Claus outfit for the lip sync video.
I am also told by HFD Chief Reggie Freeman that the Hartford Fire Department Fire House lighting competition should be coming to life this weekend as decorative lights will be illuminated on Fire Houses across the City.
And a genuine thank you to0 all of our first responders who attended the Maple Avenue NRZ Christmas "Get-together ".
Both HFD and HPD have a great working relationship with the NRZ and last night showed that once again. The HFD Fire Cadets were extremely helpful carrying in the numerous donations collected for the Saint Augustine Food Bank, It is encouraging to see the future of HFD learning the importance of community service early on. Many HPD officers , CSO's and others also attended and interacted with community members who attended.
Chief Rosado and his son Esai , direct from hockey practice, worked the crowd and Assistant Chief Thody also attended accompanied by his new fiancee showing off her Christmas present weighing down her ring finger. (It is possible the engagement was moved along by comments made by Deputy Chief Buyak at Chief Thody's swearing in recently to make it official)
Congratulations to Chief Thody and Vicki.
And finally a sincere thank you to Hartford's version of the energizer bunny, my good friend Hyacinth Yennie. I don't know where she gets her energy from, but she never stops working to make her community a better place and seeing everyone coming together last night just shows her tireless and endless love for this City.
Last night is an example of why I choose to live in Hartford
And a great job by Branford PD.
