This Saturday, April 23 the community can explore and learn more about one of your local fire departments at an open house hosted by Harris Hill Volunteer Fire Company (8630 Main Street). The free open house runs from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The event is part of a statewide volunteer initiative called “Recruit NY.”
It will be a great opportunity to see the equipment and hear from some of the volunteer firefighters. Children are amazed when they are allowed to climb into a fire truck or try on one of the firefighters boots. It also a chance to thank these incredibly dedicated neighbors who help make Harris Hill and Clarence a safer place.
For anyone who has ever considered becoming a volunteer firefighter and would like to learn more this is a good event to attend. Current volunteers will gladly discuss their involvement in the fire company and how it might be a good opportunity for those looking to serve.
Watch the short video we made last year on what it means to be a volunteer firefighter at Harris Hill Volunteer Fire Company. You can view it here.
