Major Winter Storm Safety
Please drive safely if you have to travel in the snowstorm. Also, remember if your driveway isn’t clear we will also have a hard time getting to your house in an emergency.
If you have a fire hydrant near your home please try to clear it the best you can. Those extra few minutes it takes us to clear a hydrant to use it could make a huge difference.
Special Thanks to the National Guard, who helped dig out hydrants along Rt. 40!!!
Thank you and be Safe!
Santa's Visit to the Firehouse
On Sunday, December 15th, Santa took a ride on our 1936 American Lafrance parade truck and stopped by the firehouse to meet with local children and their families. Santa, with the help of one of his elves handed out presents to the kids. Everyone enjoyed some hot chocolate and cookies.
Santa, thank you for stopping by, safe travels on the 25th!!
We broke our Toys-for-Tots Record!!!! Thank you for your generous contributions.
At our November and December, All-You-Can-Eat breakfasts collected toys for the Toys-for-Tots program. In addition, The Lansingburgh Boys Soccer collected presents during their end-of-season party and Abagail Maloney who collected presents at her Birthday Party. Altogether we collected 6 FULL boxes of presents. Speigletown Fire Company also made a donation in memory of Richard Siddions a member that passed away recently and was a great supporter of the Toys-for-Tots program, and we received some additional cash donations. All together we filled the Marine's van and donated over $300. Thank you to everyone that donated and supposed our monthly breakfasts.
Congratulations Craig Dzembo, the newest Speigletown Fire District Commissioner.
Leo Perras 1949-2019
On Thursday, November 14th we lost a long-time member Leo Perras. Leo served in the US Marine Corps., US Army, and US Navy. He was a great friend and mentor in the department and we will miss him dearly. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, former Speigletown Fire Company President Pam Perras, and the rest of the Perras family. On Tuesday, November 19th we had the opportunity to honor him one last time with a salute as he passed by the station.
Rest In Peace Brother, your watch has ended.
