Report a Struck By Incident

The Emergency Responder Safety Institute (ERSI), a committee of the Cumberland Valley Volunteer Firemen’s Association (CVVFA), has worked for years to improve the safety of those who respond to incidents on America’s roadways. Continuing to be proactive in this effort, CVVFA/ERSI has again worked to develop a better document and analyze how and where our country’s first responders are being struck, injured, and killed. This will be accomplished through this enhanced platform and capability to solicit and collect struck by incident information from voluntary reporters and significantly upgrading its data collection functionality and depth.

It typically takes 3-4 minutes to complete this reporting form. There are twelve very brief sections. All questions are optional. Please provide as much information as you can. If you do not know the answer to a question, skip it.

Posted on Halfmoon Fire Department's Facebook: 

It is with great regret and sorrow that the Board of Fire Commissioners and the Members of the Halfmoon Fire Department, announce the passing of Paul McInerney.

Paul was the District Administrator of the Halfmoon-Waterford Fire District #1, a longtime member of the C.S. Hawley Chemical Company and a dispatcher for the Waterford Police Department.

Rest in Peace, Brother.  You will be missed.

National Fallen  Firefighters Foundation


Please note the date for the 2023 National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend.


The 2023 National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend is May 6-7.

A combination of weather uncertainties and the frequent threat of an October federal government shutdown is behind the move of the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend from its traditional October date. NFFF Board Chairman Troy Markel said, “As with everything NFFF does, the priority is making sure we do right by the families of the firefighters we’re honoring.”


The change means 2023 Memorial Weekend will be May 6 and 7. While the time of year for the Candlelight and Memorial Services changes, our other four decades-long traditions will continue. Chairman Markel said, “Removing some of the uncertainties we’ve faced with the October date will help avoid distractions as we focus on honoring the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice.”
