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.
Please keep the Family of Edward Russell in your prayers. Edward was a well known business owner in Halfmoon, during that time, he served with the Hillcrest Fire Department - Life member as well as an elected board member of the Fire Commissioners.

Like many other entertainment venues throughout the State, The New York State Fair will not be open this Year due to the on going concerns of the COVID 19 virus.

Congratulations to both !!

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.
The August Meeting will be at the Rexford Firehouse on Balltown Road, Monday, August 17th at 19:30 hours.
