This weekend is an important one.  There is a statewide recruitment drive for volunteer fire companies.  There will be open houses throughout the Capital Region.  Now is the time to sign up and volunteer!   Here's howThere will be an open house at the brand spankin' new Feura Bush Firehouse for one thing .  You can find out about volunteering right there.  I should mention that it's the Onesquethaw Volunteer Fire Company in Feura Bush, specifically (don't ask me to pronounce that!)

For more details, you can check out their Facebook page or the Firehouse website.   

In fact, there are open houses all over the Capital Region this weekend.  The purpose, once again is a volunteer drive.  Many firehouses are totally run by people who give their time and energy to keep everybody out there safe. Check your local firehouse for events in your area, and if you are so inclined - please VOLUNTEER.  When you need a fire department, let's ensure there are people who will respond!
