Video: Hopkinton Fire Department Hosted Open House

In coordination with Fire prevention month, the Hopkinton Fire Department hosted an open house. The event is to raise awareness for Fire Safety and share information about what the Fire Department does and how you can stay safe. This month Fire Departments throughout the country are emphasizing that you check batteries in your smoke alarms and plan and practice a home fire escape route with your family. Also be sure to check your Carbon Monoxide alarms as we near winter. Some symptoms of Carbon Monoxide (CO) poisoning include: headache, nausea, dizziness, confusion and fainting.

At the event Bill Krauss talked to HCAM news about some of the different activities taking place, Tim Healy showed off some of the latest medical equipment in use and Sparky the Fire Dog got the Kids Dancing.. Check out the video below!

Video: Live 4 Evan 5K 2015

The Live 4 Evan 5K was created in honor of Evan Girardi, who passed away at the age of 20 from an unknown underlying heart condition. Live 4 Evan was set up in his honor to help improve the quality of life for cardiac patients and their families. Recently the Live 4 Evan organization hosted their 3rd annual 5K and the event was once again a success.

One of the programs Live 4 Evan recently helped sponsor was free heart screenings at Hopkinton and Medfield High School. Cardiologist Dr. John Cadigan talked about how a routine heart check up helped discover an underlying heart condition his son had several years ago. He mentioned the routine EKG (Electrocardiogram) saved his life; "he was cleared to play sports, had no symptoms and the routine EKG saved his life."

HCAM news talked with Father of Evan, Michael Girardi, also Co-Founders of the Live 4 Evan organization Shane Lavoie, Whitney Mullen and Jack Nealon who discussed the many programs Live 4 Evan is involved in to help patients with a heart condition. Medical Device specialist Patrick Cusanelli, Cardiologist Dr. John Cadigan and member of a similar organization, Evan Ernst, discussed how they are working with Live 4 Evan.
