East Amherst Fire Department

East Amherst Fire Department 100% Volunteer. Serving the Towns of Amherst & Clarence.
Our volunteer firefighters attend 180 training and work detail sessions adding up to approximately 3208 man hours per year. These hours consisted of live fire suppression, water rescue, haz-mat, OSHA safety, pump and ladder operations, vehicle extrication, counter-terrorism operations, and rescue techniques. Many of our firefighters also attended emergency medical technician and paramedic classes which consist of 120-150 hours of classroom and field training. The work details consisted of maintenance to vehicles, equipment, and building and grounds. In addition, countless hours were spent on administrative committees and duties. All of this is done to help keep your tax rate as low as possible. Through careful planning and budgeting our emergency vehicle fleet is all 13 years old or less and equipped with much of the latest technology and equipment. We are the only fire company providing advanced EMT-Paramedic care 24/7 to its residents and we can provide this service if requested to our neighboring fire companies. We are partnered with Twin City Ambulance for this paramedic and transportation service

The summer heat is upon us. Please remember to drink a lot of water. Make sure your family members young and old drink fluids. Take advantage of recreation centers, malls, stores and movie theaters to cool off a bit. If you are feeling thirsty you are already low on water. Drink more water than usual over the next few days of this high heat.

Tonight East Amherst provided fire and emergency medical coverage for the St Gregory the Great - Great Race. Rachel placed first in her age group yet still had the energy to stop by to say thanks to our firefighters! We think she’s almost as proud of her new helmet as she is of her outstanding finish. Congrats to Rachel and to all of today’s participants!

This morning there are still multiple signals either out, on back up generators or intersections are controlled by stop signs. Use caution on the roads this morning. Remember a traffic signal that is out means the intersection is a 4-way stop. There are a number of trees down causing distractions for drivers. A Travel Advisory still in place as of this post but will advise when it is lifted.

Driving around Buffalo today the roads are still slick as City DPW tries to eliminate hard pack and slush. So take it easy out there.

Also evident were LOTS of beer delivery trucks, more than usual. Well done Buffalo. Well done.
