You can turn this pager off.

All the fire departments in the country need help. We’ve heard all the excuses. I can’t commit to (fill in the blank), I’m not always available, I’m too young/old, I don’t know anything about it. They are just excuses. We are all volunteers. We can when we can and we can’t when we can’t. 

This is an incredible job you get paid for in ways that aren’t money. If you’ve ever thought about it, contact the VFD in your area. The hardest part, is walking through that station door the first time.
We all live in the communities we serve. How can you make a difference?

Every fire department across the country needs help.

On this day in our history: March 8, 1933- A fire discovered by Cheektowaga Police Department Lieutenant Chris Klenk while on patrol destroyed McKenzie’s Restaurant and the Union Hotel on South Union Road. The fire, which started in the restaurant caused $20,000 in damages, was fought by Doyle No. 1 and 2, Depew Fire Department, Sloan Active Hose Company #1 and Wi******er Fire Company. (3/9/33-Buffalo Courier Express and Depew Herald)
Thank You to Wi******er Fire Company for organizing this course to teach life saving skills to the residents of West Seneca.
It was awesome to see so many people who attended the CPR Certification course hosted by Wi******er Fire Company! Volunteer instructors from WSPD, Gasport Fire-Rescue, and Lake Shore Fire Department helped over 80 people learn this simple but effective life saving skill for infants and adults ❤. Keep an eye out for future training classes!
A HUGE Thank You to our very own Jason Jurek, and the Wi******er Fire Company for hosting a CPR Certification class tonight! 👏🏻

We are so thankful to the volunteer instructors from Wi******er, Gasport, & Lake Shore Fire Departments, also the West Seneca Police Department!

A team of 17 West Seneca firefighters and family (West Seneca Fire) from Union, East Seneca Fire Company, West Seneca Fire District #4 and Wi******er Fire Company are “Freezing for a Reason” on December 3rd. We are polar plunging for Special Olympics WNY. Unfortunately we are behind in our fundraising goal due to the winter storm last week. (We were a bit preoccupied). We are asking the community to support our team plunge by donating to our team and exceeding our goal!!!!! All of the donations stay in WNY.
At 17:23 hours Union Fire was alerted for the gas pump canopy collapse, possibly into the building. Union Chief 9 arrived on location and reported a confirmed canopy collapse. Union 9 reported no obvious gas leaks and a canopy against the building. Union 9-1, 9-2, and Union Rescue 5 firefighters arrived on scene and began clearing snow berween the canopy and building to confirm no civilians were trapped. During this time Union 9 requested a engine fromWi******er Fire Company and an additional Heavy Rescue from Seneca Hose Company #1 . Union 9-1 & 9-2 assumed operational roles securing the gas pump utilities and performing a secondary survey of the scene. We are happy to report that there were no injuries, the scene waa secured, and turned over to the WS Code Enforcement office.

Yesterday all six fire departments in West Seneca came together at Home Depot on Ridge Road to offer information on fire safety and to demonstrate how a fire progresses and what happens when the fire department arrives on scene. This demonstration highlighted the importance of fire safety including: proper installation of smoke detectors, properly insulating your home, the flammability of normal household furniture and the involvement of the fire department’s quick response. We thank everyone who attended and the dedication of our fire departments: Wi******er Fire Company, Seneca Hose Company #1, East Seneca Fire Hall, Vigilant Fire Company, WS, Union Fire Company, West Seneca Fire District 2
At 11:00am, we will be at Home Depot at 1881 Ridge Rd and we will be burning this wood structure. We will be showing how a fire will progress, what the smoke detectors will do, and what happens when the fire department gets there. We are here with Wi******er, Union, East Seneca, Seneca Hose, and Vigilant.
Please join us at Home Depot at 1881 Ridge Rd in West Seneca on Saturday, October 8th, 2022. Reserve will be joined by Wi******er, Union, East Seneca, Seneca Hose, and Vigilant. We will be there from 9am - 12pm and will be covering fire prevention.
