All across New York state volunteer fire departments will be open this weekend in efforts to recruit new members. Much of the state relies on volunteers to staff their fire houses. Do you have what it takes?
Last week there was a horrific house fire in Gloversville, N.Y. These stories are never good, fire is such a life destroying entity. Even after all the flames are extinguished there is so much that can never be recovered, or replaced. The best that you can hope for if this sort of tragedy ever befalls your family ids that everyone gets out safely.
