Happy National First Responders Day to all our brothers and sisters in uniform!
Solstice Senior Living hosted their Annual Fire and evacuation drill and we were happy to be apart of the procedure and making sure everything runs smoothly. They are one of our larger facilities in district and it’s important to keep up to date with getting everyone out safely and efficiently.

Last Night members of the East Amherst Fire Department did a standby for the Williamsville East High School Homecoming Bonfire. We ensure that everyone is safe and enjoy a fun evening.
Even got to give a little guy a tour of the Engine while we hit a hydrant to refilled the tank. Definitely made his night. 🚒
Today, as we are excited for the start of Football and the Bills season… we MUST also look back and reflect on the tragic events that happened on this day 22 years ago. We must never forget all the lives lost- including 343 of our own brother and sister firefighters and paramedics. And continue to pray for those who are still battling health issues coming from that horrible day. UNITY, RESPECT, HONOR, REMEMBER

Late last evening we received assistance from the Richburg-Wirt Fire District. They are going to be huge to helping us still provide service as our crews are able to receive a much needed rest. Please stay home as there still is a driving band.
A big shout out to the crews from our fire dept who have spent countless hours responding to nonstop EMS and rescue calls. Some have been there since early Friday morning with very little sleep. We had 50+ people rescued from stranded vehicles and given warm shelter and food at our firehouse. Without our dedicated volunteers the outcome of this storm could have been a lot worse. Please remember to stay home and please don’t go out on the roads. Merry Christmas to All! Stay safe!!
Please stay off the roads. It is still unsafe driving conditions and we need to allow for crews to clear the roads and remove abandon vehicles
