Submitted to Easton Patch by Easton Fire Local 2790: Yesterday, members of the Easton Fire Local 2790, along with some their families, delivered boxes of food purchased at Hannafords. This marks the 3rd year the union members have given to the residents of Elise Circle and Parker Terrace. This was the first year that we included 'File of Life' with every box.

State Audit unveiled 23 insufficient practices during 2008-2010. Corrections are reportedly being made now.
Easton Housing Authority Board Member Sandy Conant said Tuesday that the next audit will prove to be much more favorable. "It’s going to be much better," she said. "Oh yes, it will." The Housing Authority was recently cited for 23 insufficient practices, ranging from favorable treatment for certain tenants to inadequate controls of credit card expenditures in an audit conducted by the State Auditor's Office between Jan. 1, 2008 and Dec. 31 2010. Since then, things have improved dramatically, she said. The main difference, according to Conant, is the director. Susan Horner worked as the Director of the Housing Authority between 1989 and 2010. Michael Forbes is the current Housing Authority Director. "The new management now is absolutely …

Members of the Easton Fire Department participated in a food drive at Elise Circle and Parker Terrace Monday and were able to rescue one resident who had fallen in her apartment.
What began as a holiday food drive turned into a rescue mission for Easton Fire Department members Saturday morning. During the firefighter union's annual holiday food drive at Elise Circle and Parker Terrace in-which the firefighters delivered food boxes to the elderly and disabled residents in the complex, Easton's on-duty crew happened to knock on the door of a resident who had fallen the night before and was suffering from a medical condition.

An elderly Easton man is reportedly doing well after being rescued from an Elise Circle Fire earlier this month.
When Easton Fire Captain James Walsh and Firefighter Rick Salve arrived at the Elise Circle senior housing complex two Fridays ago, they knew an immediate response could mean the difference between life and death. A neighbor informed the firefighters that someone was still inside one of the smoke-filled apartments. "They began an immediate search for the victim in an extremely dangerous atmosphere," Fire Chief Thomas Stone told Selectmen Monday. "Without question they saved the victim's life." The victim, an elderly resident of Elise Circle's Building Six, who was found unconscious in the apartment, was immediately transported to Good Samaritan Medical Center by a West Bridgewater ambulance. He was later transported to Massachusetts …
