DRIVE SOBER or GET PULLED OVER

Each year, nearly 10,000 people are killed in drunk driving crashes. The risk of sharing the road with a drunk driver is even higher on holidays like New Year’s, because of parties and get-togethers. In fact, New Year’s Day is the most dangerous day of the year for drunk driving on our nation’s roadways.

Let’s work together to make this holiday, and every day, safe for everyone traveling. Please use these tips to plan a safe New Year’s celebration for everyone:

Going out?

-Designate a sober driver to make sure you and everyone with you arrive home safely this holiday season.
-Save the number of a local cab service in your phone prior to heading out.
-Consider hiring a shuttle or limousine service to transport you and your friends to and from your event.
-Arrange a hotel stay for you and your friends on the evening of the event so no one drives home impaired.

The Amherst Police wish you a safe and happy New Year’s!

Our Volunteers love doing this for you and look to see as many of you as possible. Reminder the visit is 100% based on 911 call volume.

Our hearts go out to the Williamsville Fire Department. Our thoughts and prayers for his friends and family alike. RIP brother.

It is with great sadness and the heaviest of hearts that the Williamsville Fire Department announces the passing of its president, Joe Frese. Joe passed this morning, December 18, 2021. Joe was more than our current sitting president, he was the staunchest of supporters for his department, his community, and his family. As faithful as he was to his fire department, he taught incoming firefighters to remember the rank of life – Family, Faith, Job, then firehall. A 38 year member of the department, Joe served in many roles in addition to his numerous terms as President. Joe additionally served as Vice President, Captain, Lieutenant, Director, member of the Fire Police, and on many committees and additional organizations within the department. Joe was a committed community supporter, a champion of everything WFD and Williamsville, having served as Deputy Mayor of the village. Joe was warm and witty, crass and curt, passionate and personable, and you could only love Joe.
As recently as Thanksgiving of this year, Joe was where you knew you could always find him at 7am on Thanksgiving morning – at the annual WFD football game and breakfast, flashing his grin in the traditional group photo prior to kickoff. That grin, that wit, that wise ‘ol guy will be missed. Our sympathies are with his wife Ev, son and daughter, Jason (& Tiffany) and Amanda (& Rick), and the joys of his life, his granddaughters, Liliana, Angelina and Presley. Rest peacefully, WFD 16. We’ll take it from here.
