Welcome to the Saratoga County Firematic Officer's web site.

Annual Dinner Meeting

The Board of Directors met prior to the August Association meeting and have decided that the annual dinner meeting traditionally held in December will not be this year.  Due to COVID 19 and its uncertainty this winter season we feel it is in the best interest of everyone's health and safety.

***  November 30th - Update ***

The meeting on Friday, December 11, 2020 at 7 PM will not take place in person.  There will be a telephone conference call meeting on the 11th at 7 PM.

An email notice will be sent out by the County Fire Coordinator on behalf of the Association later in the week with the telephone number and PIN number to use in order to participate in the meeting.

The Saratoga County Fire Advisory Board meeting  on Monday, November 30th.

A note from the State Fire Chief's Association.

This is the first time the NYSAFC conference has been canceled since 1917 and 1918, when it was called off due to World War I. More than a century later, our event continues to grow and thrive, so we know we will make it to the other side of this pandemic stronger. Although we're all disappointed that FIRE 2020 has been canceled, the Annual Conference & FIRE Expo will be back, bigger and better than ever in Syracuse from June 16-19, 2021. Registration will be opening soon. We look forward to seeing you there! Until then, stay safe and healthy.

As you all are aware from notices sent out by County OES - the Capital Region has experienced an increase in COVID cases.   It is important to keep vigilant when responding to emergency and non-emergency calls for service.

Interaction during EMS calls - your crew members, including Chief Officers, should be using PPE at all times regardless of the dispatch information received.  You should have the mind set that everyone has COVID. 

 

Think about it, do you keep track where everyone has been and who they have had contact with.  Family members, customers, co workers, peers and BEYOND.  It is difficult at times to grasp the events over the past many months and how it has wreaked havoc amongst  us all, but, it is important to protect yourself and your family members.

Wear a mask, wash your hands frequently with warm water and soap and when not available, use hand sanitizer.  Work space should be cleaned often to assure a safer environment and be smart about distancing.

Firehouse Magazine Article - COVID-19 outbreak at Fire Station

South Glens Falls Fire Department is in the process of obtaining pricing to have the sign at the County Fire Training Center refurbished.

Along with having the sign refurbished, the project team would like to have new landscaping placed.

With the potential of a new training building to be built, it would be a nice fit to have the sign refurbished with new landscaping welcoming all to the Byron Baker Fire Training Center.

Estimated cost for this project is between $3,000 and $ 4,000.  A great portion of this is for the sign. 

 

Donations are being sought to help cover the projected costs.  If your agency is interested in helping, you may send donations to the South Glens Falls Fire Company, 7 W. Marion Ave., South Glens Falls, NY  12803.

Check payable to South Glens Falls Fire Company, memo: Fire Training Center Sign.
