Let's Keep our Road Workers Safe!


The safety of road users and workers is a concern on roads and highways worldwide.
Thousands of people are killed when traffic has to pass through road construction or maintenance works every year. According to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) the annual number of persons killed in motor vehicle crashes in work zones in the US has increased 45 percent over the last 10 years. The majority of these fatalities are drivers or occupants; however, 15 percent are non-motorists – including pedestrians, bikers and construction workers.

The Risks to Road Safety at Construction Zones
Road construction zones present a deadly hazard for workers, motorists, and pedestrians. This hazard is brought about by high speed limits, impatient drivers, and widespread traffic congestion.  To this we can add heat, driving stress, and long stretches of highway under construction - creating a recipe for extreme driving hazards for motorists and road workers alike.

The main causes of deaths and injuries at construction zones are:

  • Speeding traffic - the number one cause of death and injury in highway construction work zones.
  • Inadequate sign posting and lighting and drivers failing to notice road workers. 
  • Drivers do not pay attention to work zone signs or flaggers indicating they should slow down or come to a stop.
  • Drivers are distracted by cellular phone calls, conversations, and activities at roadside and are not merging properly. 
  • Drivers are driving right up to the last second and then try to force themselves in - if the other driver doesn't let them get in, they enter  the work zones and endanger the lives of workers.

Many states in the US have greatly increased penalties for speeding through work zones. Tough new measures are implemented to encourage drivers to slow down and avoid the potentially deadly consequences of reckless driving through work zones. 

Road Safety for drivers/motorists at construction zones/ road works
Perhaps the best way to avoid long delays, frustration, and the potential for an accident is to avoid construction zones whenever possible. If a construction zone is unavoidable, drivers should allow extra time in their schedules in case there are traffic delays. Every safe driver has a responsibility to exercise caution and good judgment in construction zones. 

Safety professionals recommend several precautions to help make construction zones safer for everyone:

  • When approaching a construction/maintenance situation exercise caution and slow down. 
  • Observe warning and caution signs before entering a construction zone. 
  • Observe these posted signs until you see the one that says you've left the work zone.
  • Turn on your lights to make your vehicle more visible.
  • Expecting the unexpected is a golden rule when travelling through construction zones.
  • Avoid abrupt driving maneuvers.
  • Always be aware that vehicles ahead of you may stop unexpectedly. 
  • Maintain a safe following distance. Rear-end collisions are one of the most common types of construction zone accidents.
  • Drivers should slow to the posted speed and move to the proper lane as instructed. 
  • Traffic and road conditions may dictate an even slower speed. 
  • Keep -up with the traffic flow. Motorists can help maintain traffic flow and posted speeds by merging smoothly and not slowing to "gawk" at road work and equipment and crews.
  • Obey road crew flaggers! The flagger knows what is best for moving traffic safely in the work zone. A flagger has the same authority as a regulatory sign, so you can be cited for disobeying his or her direction.
  • Drivers should not wait until the last minute to merge to the correct lane.
  • Use correct merging techniques when changing lanes – use your indicators.
  • Narrow lanes and restricted shoulders make construction zones a common place for lane-change accidents.
  • Regular traffic lanes are often shifted to temporary lanes and shoulders that may not provide the stability regular traffic lanes offer.
  • Stay alert for aggressive drivers. If another motorist is aggressively jockeying for position, drivers should let them move on. Challenging another driver encourages road rage and endangers the safety of other motorists and workers in the area.
  • Avoid distracting activities. Remaining alert for unexpected hazards is critical when travelling through construction zones. Talking on a cell phone, tuning the radio, eating, reading, or other similarly distracting activities can quickly lead to an accident. 
  • Watch for construction equipment and workers. Construction equipment entering and exiting a work zone without warning, equipment extending into traffic, and construction crews and flaggers working dangerously close to moving traffic are a few of the hazards to expect.
  • Stay alert for obstacles and debris. Construction equipment, signs, and barriers may be located close to the edge of the roadway. Debris from work projects, especially dust, dirt, and gravel, may cause added disruption. 
  • Be patient, cautious, and courteous. Remember, the work zone crew members are working to improve the road and make your future drive better.
Many motorists view road construction workers as an inconvenience, but they should rather look at them as a service. Road and maintenance workers are doing their best to minimize motorist inconvenience. No matter how it seems to the motorist, road workers and flaggers are striving to improve traffic safety conditions, and it is up to the driver to be alert, aware, and responsive

EMS

Featuring Our Enfield Emergency Medical Services!


Enfield EMS is a division of the Town of Enfield, Department of Public Safety. They are the 911-ambulance provider for the Town of Enfield, Connecticut. 

EMS covers the town’s 34 square miles and protects the town’s 50,000 residents and visitors 24-7, 365 days a year. They are a well-trained and highly skilled part of your safety net.  Paramedics and EMTs are able to take care of you in any immediate medical emergency, and will get you to an appropriate medical facility for definitive care. Together with our first responder agencies (the Enfield Police and the Enfield, Hazardville, Thompsonville, North Thompsonville, and Shaker Pines fire districts). Enfield EMS is able to provide an exceptionally fast response. Enfield EMS is the only municipal, third-service EMS organization in the State of Connecticut.
 
To meet the needs of the community, we staff anywhere from 5 ambulances at peak (from about 11 a.m. until about 4 p.m.) to 2 ambulances after midnight. This allows us to meet the needs of the community without excess cost to the community. Our ambulances are station-based, primarily from our HQ location on Enfield Street at South Road.
 
Enfield EMS is a 911-only ambulance service. Each year, they respond to about 7,500 calls for service. Most of these calls result in transports to an area hospital. Enfield EMS offers paramedic-level care. This allows them to provide numerous medications and therapies that are not available at the basic life support level. For the patient, this means more immediate relief of their emergency and a higher level of expertise managing their care. They bring the emergency department to the patient’s side.

EMS Week

Enfield’s Emergency Medical Service will be celebrating National EMS Week May 15th – 21st.  National Emergency Medical Services Week brings together local communities and medical personnel to publicize safety and honor the dedication of those who provide the day-to-day lifesaving services on medicine's "front line."
This year's theme is "EMS STRONG: Called to Care"

The American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) was instrumental in establishing EMS Week when President Gerald Ford declared November 3 – 10, 1974 as the first “National Emergency Medical Services Week.” This annual observance continued for four more years and was then re-instituted by ACEP in 1982.

IT’S THE 40TH ANNIVERSARY OF EMS WEEK. HOW HAVE THE ROLES OF THE EMT AND THE PARAMEDIC EVOLVED SINCE 1974?

EMS has become more and more important to the coordinated treatment of trauma, and getting patients to predesignated trauma centers quickly.  EMS is critical to the chain of survival for sudden  cardiac arrest. Enfield EMS has made significant strides over the past few years, including the ability to identify certain types of heart attacks.  By acquiring and reading a 12-Lead Electrocardiogram (EKG), we are able to get the individual directly to the Cardiac Catherization Laboratory which can stop the progression of a heart attack.  We’ve given Paramedics more resources, a wider variety of medications, increasingly better training and we are even looking forward to a future where they may be participating in some outpatient care in medical surveillance for things like congestive heart failure. By providing skilled patient care in the field, EMS plays an integral role in successful patient outcomes.

Town of Enfield Department of Public Works Hosts CT DEEP Informational Session
on the State’s Solid Waste Management Plan


On March 10, the Town of Enfield Department of Public Works hosted a public regional information session with the CT DEEP on the State’s Solid Waste Management Plan, also known as the Comprehensive Materials Management Strategy (CMMS). The meeting took place at Parkman Elementary School. The CMMS is an action-oriented roadmap to achieve the state’s vision for 60% recycling by 2024. It will replace the state’s current Solid Waste Management Plan, which was last updated in 2006. Currently the state is at a 30% recycling rate with 3.6 million tons of waste generated per year. 

    “The Town of Enfield is pleased to take a leadership role on this important subject to ensure the public is informed and has the opportunity to comment” said Jonathan Bilmes, Director of Public Works for the Town of Enfield. Mr. Bilmes opened the meeting and introduced guest speakers, Robert Isner, Director of Waste Engineering and Enforcement Division and Lee Sawyer, Project Manager, Materials Management and Compliance Assurance for CT DEEP. In his opening remarks, Mr. Bilmes congratulated the DEEP for many improvements from the 2006 plan. While the 2016 proposal is very progressive, Mr. Bilmes indicated there were a few things that could help municipalities such as Enfield. He asked the DEEP representatives to consider re-instatement of funding for regional recycling coordinators, increased focus on the commercial and industrial sector, especially small businesses, and to provide more options for cost effective disposal of catch basin cleanings and street sweepings. Finally, Mr. Bilmes asked for state assistance to facilitate a working group of cities and towns with municipal collection forces.

    Mr. Sawyer revealed that Connecticut is a leader in recycling and composting but stressed the importance of the need to increase this effort. He reviewed the purpose of the plan and steps that will be taken to reach the 60% goal through source reduction, recycling and new technologies. Further, DEEP proposes that the CMMS align waste management policies with initiatives related to climate change, greenhouse gasses and other clean air policies. The focus of the draft CMMS is to achieve the goals by focusing on personal behavior and technology. The plan focuses on three pillars that are fundamental to its success. These include: improving the performance of municipal recycling systems and increasing compliance with mandatory recycling provisions ensuring that the investment and regulatory climate promotes development and improvement of recycling, conversion and disposal infrastructure and requiring corporations that design, produce, market and sell products in Connecticut to share responsibility for stewarding the end of life of those materials in an environmentally sustainable manner. 

    Mr. Sawyer distributed a four-year action plan, as well as a series of ongoing DEEP tasks related to the CMMS before taking questions. Mr. Sawyer said that a 60% diversion rate is expected to save an additional $40 million per year in avoided disposal fees. 

    Additional information sessions will be held throughout the state prior to a Public Hearing on April 13 at DEEP Headquarters in Hartford. The public will have the opportunity to comment on the plan through April 22 at Deep.cmms@ct.gov.

CALEA

CALEA Accreditation and the Enfield Police Department


The Commission for the Accreditation of Police Enforcement Agency (CALEA) is the standard of excellence in law enforcement, and the Town of Enfield has been bestowed this honor since 1996, obtaining its 7th this June.  Only 18 agencies in the state have this accreditation and only 4% have obtained it nationwide.  This is a voluntary process but due to the current climate of negativity towards law enforcement around the country, more and more law enforcement agencies are joining the program in order to adhere to the best practices and 700 plus standards of excellence set nationwide.

 CALEA provides a process to systematically conduct an internal review and assessment of the agencies’ policies and procedures, and make adjustments wherever necessary to meet a body of internationally accepted standards.
Since the first CALEA Accreditation Award was granted in 1984, the program has become the primary method for an agency to voluntarily demonstrate their commitment to excellence in law enforcement. The standards upon which the Law Enforcement Accreditation Program is based reflect the current thinking and experience of law enforcement practitioners and researchers. Major law enforcement associations, leading educational and training institutions, governmental agencies, as well as law enforcement executives internationally, acknowledge CALEA’s Standards for Law Enforcement Agencies© and its Accreditation Programs as benchmarks for professional law enforcement agencies.

  • CALEA Accreditation requires an agency to develop a comprehensive, well thought out, uniform set of written directives. This is one of the most successful methods for reaching administrative and operational goals, while also providing direction to personnel.
  • CALEA Accreditation standards provide the necessary reports and analyses a CEO needs to make fact-based, informed management decisions.
  • CALEA Accreditation requires a preparedness program be put in place—so an agency is ready to address natural or man-made unusual occurrences.
  • CALEA Accreditation is a means for developing or improving upon an agency’s relationship with the community.
  • CALEA Accreditation strengthens an agency’s accountability, both within the agency and the community, through a continuum of standards that clearly define authority, performance, and responsibilities.
  • Being CALEA Accredited can limit an agency’s liability and risk exposure because it demonstrates that internationally recognized standards for law enforcement have been met, as verified by a team of independent outside CALEA-trained assessors.
  • CALEA Accreditation facilitates an agency’s pursuit of professional excellence.

There are many key benefits to being a CALEA accredited agency:

Greater accountability within the agency
CALEA standards give the Chief Executive Officer a proven management system of written directives, sound training, clearly defined lines of authority, and routine reports that support decision-making and resource allocation.


Reduced risk and liability exposure
Many agencies report a reduction in its liability insurance costs and/or reimbursement of accreditation fees.


Stronger defense against civil lawsuits
Accredited agencies are better able to defend themselves against civil lawsuits. Also, many agencies report a decline in legal actions against them, once they become accredited.


Staunch support from government officials
Accreditation provides objective evidence of an agency's commitment to excellence in leadership, resource management, and service-delivery. Thus, government officials are more confident in the agency's ability to operate efficiently and meet community needs.


Increased community advocacy
Accreditation embodies the precepts of community-oriented policing. It creates a forum in which law enforcement agencies and citizens work together to prevent and control challenges confronting law enforcement and provides clear direction about community expectations.

Town of Enfield’s Development Services
Announces the Return of
Enfield’s Community and Farmers Market 


The entire Town of Enfield Development Services team is thrilled with the success of last year’s market and is excited about this coming market season, the schedule of events, and the return of the heart of our market-the farmers and community vendors.

“The goal of the Enfield Community & Farmers Market is to provide a variety of handcrafted and locally grown, harvested, and produced products that are made in the state of Connecticut. We want to connect area residents to enjoy local crafts, foodie specialties and produce to foster community while creating healthier eating habits to enhance the quality of life in Enfield and throughout area communities who visit us. This social gathering includes local bands thanks to Falcetti Music and area community organizations to foster a social gathering and interaction and to preserve Enfield’s unique artisans, bakers, and agricultural heritage by supporting local crafters and farmers. Come each week to find different vendors states Peter Bryanton, Acting Director of Development Services.

The Town of Enfield, Development Services will host Enfield’s 3rd Community and Farmers Market each Wednesday from 4-8 p.m. The opening day is scheduled for Wednesday, July 13 and will close the market season on Wednesday, October 12, 2016, which will also be Enfield’s 3rd Fall-O-Ween Festival event. There is plenty of free parking available in the area.
“Continued thanks to Bruce Yelle from Falcetti Music so we may continue to enjoy weekly live performances and look forward to the return of Spiral Logic, as well as other local bands. Also, visitors will once again be able to enjoy the special appearance of popular local celebrity, Faith the Goat, whose presence has been confirmed by Shaker Farm Market’s very own Farmer Rick. We also want to thank the Enfield Police explorers who help out each week,” states Bryanton.

Many of the farmers like Shaker Farm Market, Vinnie’s Little Acre, and Sun Valley Farm accepted SNAP food vouchers last year. Notices have already gone out to last year’s vendors, who eagerly anticipate the market and will be selling their fresh fruits and vegetables, homemade pies, crafters, farm fresh produce, bakery goodies, artisan jewelry, handmade clothing and more. There will also be a weekly chalk art walk and activities for the kids and adult coloring items.
“Last year Enfield’s 2nd Community and Farmers Market drew many vendors each week and we look forward to its continued growth as we head to our 3rd year together,” Bryanton adds. We continue to look to grow our community and farmers market and welcome vendors to come and join us. There is still no fee associated with setting up each week. The community and farmers market provides a wonderful sense of community and camaraderie for market goers and vendors.” To sign up is easy and free-go to www.thinkenfield.com and click on Enfield’s Community & Farmers Market.  You can also contact Development Services at developmentservices@enfield.org or 860.253.6385.
